Hi,
Audacity is free and works. But I would rather use Reaper myself and a full working demo can be had here:
http://www.reaper.fm/download.php

The Reaper demo is good for 60 days and still runs fine after that, just with a reminder delay at the start. But in 2 months you should know if it is a keeper and you can then get a full license for $60 and it will last you years....

Not to be lost in all this is that DAWs are kind of tricky to learn. So Reaper has a ton of very HQ videos and they can be found here:
http://www.reaper.fm/videos.php  -  These videos will show you just about everything you would want to know about the DAW and or recording aspect!

Enjoy and welcome to recording!

To be honest with you Paul if you've got a half decent mobile/cell phone you'll probably get a good enough recording for your first go from those. You'll soon want to move on to something better but it'll give you the personal feedback you want.

I've been doing that for a while now just to listen to myself playing to see how thing are progressing, it's a great aid to record practice of what you're learning from the start. I also posted my first song I learned on here using my phone and will do the same until I can justify buying something better.
Acoustic: Taylor 214ce, Sigma 00M -15, 1970 Tenada G703 classical.
Electric: Squire Classic Vibe 50's Tele; Vintage V6 reissued Strat.
Amp: Blackstar ID Core Beam. FX: Electro harmonix 720 Looper, Zoom 505 II, Bespeco Volume pedal

You are absolutely right. So I did just that. Sounds a bit wonky and out of rhythym. Its strange to hear yourself play. I will practice a bit more and than I will post something here.
