I strongly suggest you not do this... Firstly, you'll need some sort of attenuator to pad the signal, otherwise be prepared to destroy your equipment (amp and interface). Secondly, it'll sound like shit without some sort of speaker emulation or a D.I. box. So in order to record directly without a microphone, you're gonna have to most likely fork out some money. I just suggest buying a dynamic cardioid microphone of sorts and putting that up against the speakers. In most cases it will be much cheaper than buying the necessary direct equipment, and will ofter sound better unless you have had previous experience with such recording techniques. As for mics, I suggest perhaps a Shure PG57 or SM57 as far as inexpensive, but reliable microphones. But many dynamic microphones will do just as well. Actually, I suggest you get a 57 anyway, because you can use them for just about anything. Shit, you can build a deck with one if you really wanted too.

The SM58 is better suited for vocals, the 57 is an instrument microphone for the most part, but I have used it for vocals and some people including myself love the sound. It's better suited for backup vocals in truth, but I've had beautiful lead and backup vocal sounds from it and the 58. Just don't go using a 58 for an amp, it'll sound like ass.
