    If it's not too much of a delay, you could try to compensate by changing the track delay on the track that receives the guitar signal. You can change it at the bottom of each track, in session view. Set it to a negative value.

    It's called latency and it comes from the interface. You might try lowering the buffer in Live's preferences. Also direct monitoring might be something to look into. Obviously try the delay compensation described above as well. Are you using anything like Soundflower?
