i am having trouble getting a clean sound on my guitar when i record to my computer using a lightsnake instrument to usb cable hooked straight from my guitar to my computer, its not going through a distortion pedal, but it still sounds a little distorted, so i cant play things like the first half of one orother things like that without them sounding off. is this normal? anyway i can change this?

just so you know im using audacity, like a lot of people, to record.
