get something like this:

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3626445

It costs $8.96.

Next, get some sort of cheap DAW to edit in. I use adobe audition. That's not exactly cheap, though. But basically all you need is something that'll let you record multiple tracks and put them together. I'm sure someone else can help you out with finding a decent program for cheap.

But seriously. People go out and buy all sorts of expensive gear when you can get somewhat decent results with a cheap nine dollar computer mic if you know how to use it properly.

But for the record, I do use a lot of relatively expensive stuff.

try buying one of those cheap computer mics. put it up against your amp speaker and play your guitar at a fairly low volume. that'll probably sound better than plugging your amp directly into your computer.

Option 1: buy a line in cord with a large head phone jack and a small one, this will let you plug your guitar into your amp then your amp into your computer.
Option 2: Internal or external mic.

In both cases you will need recording software, I use audacity.
