The acoustic guitar is a fundamental part of most popular songs, but recording it can seem like a complicated process. Not only does your choice of mic affect the results, but where you place the mic in relation to the guitar—near the 12th fret, sound hole, bridge and elsewhere—can have a huge impact on the sound as well.
Fortunately, with a few basic techniques, you can capture a broad range of sounds for any style. The video below is presented by Audio-Technica and provides some simple advice for getting great results.
