That's correct. The aim is to produce a natural sounding acoustical recording, and for that you need an external microphone. The guitar having a piezo pickup doesn't mean that you shouldn't use that guitar for recording, just don't record it using the piezo pickup.Martin Adrian wrote:so in conclusion i need to record my classical guitar using microphone right? even though i've used piezzo pickups in my classical guitar???

Recording with a smartphone or tablet should be good enough for posting in the lessons, and even for the exam. Of course using a condenser mic (or two) will be better. To answer what is acceptable you need to ask what is the purpose of the recording... I decided to buy a better microphone (not good, quite cheap, but much better than the internal mic on my camera) during D02 because I wanted better sound quality in my recordings, not because the it was necessary. I would concentrate on developing the skills more than the quality of the recording ...
