Thanks for this beautiful music and interpretation.
Would you be able to say something about the guitar you are using and the equipment?
Thank you - from Hamburg
Thank you. I'm playing a Christopher Dean guitar and I used two mics.
Usually, I just use a stereo one (Rode NT4), but this time I used a mono (Rode NT5) about 25cm from the lower bout and positioned the NT4 about about 1½m from me. I then mixed the 3 channels together and added a little artificial reverb.
I was pleased with the result. Next time I record myself in public, I'll use two mics again. In the past, for convenience, I've positioned the stereo mic, just under my music stand and pointed it up a little, but it's not the right place for it!
