Sync Issue

Apologies if this has been brought up a million times already. I did search around the forum for the last few days and did a bunch of searching online and still I’m not sure what to do about this, so hopefully one or more of you can help me out or maybe point me in the right direction of some useful information.

In Audacity 1.3, when I record a second track, for example, a lead guitar line over a rhythm guitar, upon playing it back, the second track automatically starts a few seconds late. It’s been fixable, as I simply select the waveform/track and slide it to the left to line it up with the original track, making it play how it was intended, but I’m wondering if there’s some way I can set it to sync automatically?

Thanks in advance!

Have a look at this page in the manual and see if that helps.
