I plug my guitar from the jack directly to the computer and try to record but apparently you're meant to have something in between the jack and the computer

my question to you guys is

Make sure the volume is up on your computer, and that you're plugged into the right port. I plug directly from my guitar to my computer and it works fine.

You should have an interface, like a decent soundcard or a Line 6 Pocketpod kinda thing.

a plain guitar signal is pretty weak

so even if it worked you wouldnt get a very good recording

you need something in between to boost the signal

if your amp has a line out port you could try that

and also this belongs in riffs and recordings
