the program you use won't matter if you don't have proper hardware to support your recording. what sort of soundcard do you have? are you just using what came with your computer or did you invest in an actual piece of hardware when you got your system?

there are lots of backing tracks you could use if you look for them on the net. tons of jam tracks too.

As far as ease of use and free-ness, audacity is the way. It's not the greatest recording software, but it gets the job done.

but audacity does not have real drum kits to sequence with, or 'slayer' bass/gutiar synth

other than that, audacity is very helpful

If you aren't planning on buying a specific piece of audio hardware for recording, then your results aren't going to be fantastic. The only thing I can think to improve your recordings without upgrading is check that the input you're using on the soundcard is the 'line in' not the 'mic in' socket...

a 'mic in' socket is for a low level signal from an unpowered microphone, a 'line in' is for a line level powered signal, which is what will be coming from your amp. If you are putting this signal into your 'mic in' socket, it will be overloading it and distorting it.

And on the software side, I'm still fond of Cubase SX3 - I have used Pro Tools and other high end gear in pro studios in the UK, but for home use I think Cubase covers all the bases, and you can get a real high end product out of it!
