I just recorded this. (Note, I need to redo the bass line to fix a couple mistakes and redo the guitar with a better tone. Total time on this was <1 hour)
Couple things. Frist, let me know what you think. There are lyrics but I don’t sing…well, I sing in the shower but the few people who have heard me sing ran away screaming. I should have a vocal track on it next week. I hope.
Second, for the recording dopers, how do you mic acoustic guitars? I haven’t quite figured out how to get a good tone yet. Here are my options: I have an SM-57, a couple Nady CM-88 Condenser mics and a MXL 990 condenser mic. This was done with the MXL. For the mix there is a bit of compression, eq and some reverb. What are the best mics (that do not cost as much as my car) for acoustic guitars? What are the better ways of mic’ing? What about eq?
