Hi Galaxy1954,

Welcome to the Community. I've moved your topic to the "Audio Production" forum. Let's see. If your guitar has a pickup, you could go out of that and into and audio interface that connects to your computer (many interfaces connect via USB). Or, with or without a pickup, you could use a microphone to record your guitar playing in your recording software.

Once you're happy with your recording, you can export your track to a compatible audio file (for instance .wav or .mp3) and upload that to your SoundCloud account. https://soundcloud.com/upload

Hope this helps to get started 🙂
Hello Galaxy1954,

Depending on the platform you use (pc, mac, linux), you can try some these:

GarageBand: https://www.apple.com/mac/garageband/
A light, fast and versatile digital audio workstation which focuses mainly on composing and recording.
Unfortunately, GarageBand is only available on mac.

LMMS: https://lmms.io/
LMMS is a fully functional DAW (digital audio workstation) with various editors for composing music. It is a potent music-making tool if you manage to wrap your head around a plethora of functions and settings. In other words, the more experienced you are in making music and music software the easier this piece of software is to use. Fortunately, LMMS comes fully stocked with extensive documentation along with the links to a wiki page and a collection of user tutorials.

If your guitar doesn't have a pick up be very careful when choosing the microphone you are going to use for the recording. You can find more information on that along with the list of features relevant for making the right choice here: https://musicgroupies.com/best-mic-for-acoustic-guitars-reviews

Good luck! ☺
