This may belong in the Advanced Mic Techniques forum, but as I'm one of Harvey's students, I thought I'd ask here. Our band is talking about climbing out of my basement studio, leaving our close-mic'd electric stuff behind and going acoustic for a bit. I'd like to try the single-mic technique I saw Steve Earle and the Del McCoury band using. Our lead guitarist (who's also a damn good banjo player) lives in a wonderful old pre-Civil war house with 12' ceilings and oak paneled walls in the living room we plan to use to record. It's a very "live" sounding room. Instruments will include banjo, guitar, violin, bass, mando and a little percussion (bongos, shakers, etc.) and of course some vocals to go with it. Anybody out there doing the single-mic with several players gathered 'round thing? Any tips, advice, and of course "war stories" are all greatly appreciated. - ken, pickin' and-a grinin'
