Recording the acoustic guitar with three mics

If you have enough mics to choose from try using a three microphone combination of acoustic guitar. This technique is especially effective for solo guitar as it offers a wide range of tonal options when it's time to mix. It can also provide an exceptionally wide image in the stereo field. Here is how to do it. Place a single mic at the point where the neck meets the body, as in previous videos, and then place a pair of identical mics at least 3 feet back from the guitar and a least 3 feet apart. This creates a virtual triangle of sound, and it's especially effective in good reverberant wooden spaces.

(music playing) To sum it all up, by adding a pair of distant mics t least 3 feet away from the guitar and the least 3 feet apart you create a nice spacious stereo sound field at your close mic. This is perfect for a solo acoustic guitar but the sound is really dependent upon the room.
