acoustic guitar 1 man band session

Postby watertore » Sat Apr 23, 2011 11:05 pm

I brought out one of my acoustic guitar and mic'd it along with my 1 man drums. Mic'ng the acoustic guitar in this set up is as hard as recording with the same mic for the vocals and harp. Seeing everything is a few inches from each other makes for a real recording challenge. There are all kinds of conflicting frequencies bleeding into all the mics. The guitar is a handmade take on a gibson L-00 that was made by a 3rd generation appalachian luthier out of 80+ year old woods. He sold it to me, brand new for $200. It has a sweet sound! All words and music spontaneously created and recorded. Walter
