Okay, so I want to start recording some of my playing.

Where should I start?

I really like the tone I'm getting from my amp/cab (peavey XXX head) so I don't really want to buy an interface like Podfarm if I don't need to, Can I just buy a decent microphone and run it into my PC? Or do I need something else?

I'm completely new to this stuff so any advice would be appreciated. I tried the search bar but it didn't help me a whole lot.

-Thanks.

Micing it is your best option.

Okay thanks, Any recommendations on a semi-budget microphone if I need to spend 100 bucks on an interface??

Check craigslist, you can usually find an SM57 for a pretty decent deal. I see them from $40-$60 locally pretty often.
