Need a simple way to record riffs on my mac, perferably with tabs at hand. Cheap or free if possible. Thanks.
Garage band? Audacity? For quick and dirty, I use a Vox amp plug and connect the headphone port to my computer mic port and record using Audacity.
Record with your Mac's microphone using Garageband or get an adapter and plug the cord from your guitar to the line-in. I'd recommend getting a DI-box if you're willing to spend around $30-50.
