Is there any (free) programs I can use to record guitar then bass on my laptop.
It doesn't have to be fancy, just i've actually been playing my guitar since the start of the year and would like to see what some things sound with a bass added in (i don't have any friends - so I can't ask them).
I've never ever recorded anything before, so no idea if it's even possible, but I imagine it should be.

Made by the guy who made WinAmp

The trial version is free and then after the trial's over, it just nags you to buy a license when it starts up, but everything still works fine.

If you have access to a Mac you can use Garageband, (comes with Mac OS).  Are you going to mic amps or plug directly in?  To plug directly in you'll need an amp with a line-out or a USB box or something like it.

So..... here is the scenario

You are mic'ing a drum kit.  (snare, high-hat, 3 toms, 2 crash, 1 ride, 1 kick)

You have:

A kick drum mic on a short stand
2 instrument mics, (SM57's)
2 mic stands with booms

Where do you place your mics....???  (using the equipment described above only)

BEGIN!!!

a land that bears no green
where there\'s ice and snow
and the whale fishies blooow
and daylights seldom seen

Mic the kick (in the drum if possible) and the snare as they're most important. Use the other mic as an overhead. Towards the left (judging as if you're sitting at the kit - assuming the drummer is right-handed) to catch the hi-hat. Other cymbals over to the right.
