Acoustic guitars are another instrument that can benefit greatly by being miked from more than one position. Just as guitar pickups are usually positioned at different points along the string length of an electric guitar, placing one microphone near the bridge, and another where the neck meets the sound hole on an acoustic guitar,… View this post
