I don't think I've done any mic'ing on an acoustic guitar (on my own, at least) for four or five years. I remember getting really frustrated with an i5, and just giving up. I bought the super cheap MXL 990/991 combo and got pretty good results, I think.
I added a bit of compression to both tracks and a bit of reverb to the melody track. I think I should've gone back and rode the automation a bit with the melody track (I feel some of the dynamics are lost when the rhythm bits are louder), but all in all, I'm happy given how little effort I put into this one. This is BY FAR the least I've worked on one of these covers.
As always, tips, tricks, and criticism is always welcome. This may be a regular thing in the future, so the better I can get at grandpa guitars, the better.
Good effort, well done.
You wanna watch some of those low mids on the rhythm track though. Mostly, nice body, sometimes, a bit muddy.
Overall though its pretty impressive, well done.
