hey UG,
i'm a complete recordong noob.i just thought about recording guitar 5 mins ago,because of a couple of reasons

1. i'm starting to write my own songs and would like to record some riffs.

2.it will do good to my overall guitar playing.


i really don't have any money right now,probably just about $30.would i be able to record guitar parts with just a cable that has 1/8" and 1/4" on either side of it and audacity. sound quality really doesn't have to be good just something that my ears would bear without bleeding. i just need the most basic knowledge of how i would do it.

this is how i record:
guitar>amp>(from headphone jack on amp)microphone jack

you have to play with the volume levels to stop excessive distortion though. Also, I record through goldwave (look it up, its quite nice for editing songs, but then ive never used audacity so I can't compare)

A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music
