I often recommend that people use a “45-degree angle” on the neck microphone as a starting point for recording acoustic guitar. Just describing it in words can be a little confusing, so I put together this quick video to illustrate what I mean.
I also explain why the 45-degree angle is a good place to start.
If you like this video, and/or you would like to see additional topics covered, please let me know in the comments section below.
