You’ve got the inspiration, the drive, and the courage to record your first song on acoustic guitar. But how do you truly record your guitar’s tone without being a sound engineer?
On this episode of Acoustic Tuesday, you’ll get a crash course in using microphones to capture the sound that you want out of your acoustic guitar. From choosing the right microphone to placement in your recording space, we’ll go through the basics you need to know.
One brief disclaimer though: I am not a sound engineer. I’m a working musician who’s learned over the years how to get the sound that I want depending on my gear and space. There are plenty of more in-depth perspectives out there on YouTube, so if you’re looking for a scientific analysis of recording acoustic instruments this is not it.
Now with that out of the way, I wanted to show you how different microphones and placements sound. I’ll play the same licks, back to back, within different recording configurations. I hope this demonstration will point you in the right direction!
