    It sounds like your guitar is acoustic only, that means you need to either use it as an acoustic-electric with an audio interface that connects the 1/4" cable to your computer via USB, or use a microphone to pick up sound from your acoustic. Either of these options will have you selecting the guitar's audio source from the "Input" menu in Garageband where you select the inputted audio source for your track.
