Thanks, I"m a complete Beginner at this. All I want to do for now is, lay a couple
of backing tracks down to practice to. Is Audacity Dummy proof, or are there
simpler Programs available?

Dunno about dummy proof, but it's pretty simple on a basic level. You can do a lot of advanced stuff with it, but I don't mess with that stuff.

Audcacity has to be the slickest free recording program going. It has some tools that are handy even if you have paid for programs.

I've just downloaded Audacity, and read through the
tutorials, but can't work out how to get my Guitar sound
onto the Computer. Do I set up my mike & amp, and
plug into P.C. somehow? Please help me :roll:

For some of the stuff I have recorded, I do the same.

Another program to try out, if you wish, is NeoSoundFX. It works real well. I can't compare it to Audacity since I've never used Audacity.
