I couldn't sleep tonight so I decided to finally record my "Little Larry".
He's a Koa/Spruce model and love's to travel. He enjoy's Fingerstyle with the rare strum thrown in just for fun. ;)

I've wondered what the little Parlor would sound like recorded for quite some time now. I decided, since I'm wide awake at 1:00 AM, tonight is the night.

I used one ADK mic into a small 6 channel mixer then straight to my PC's soundcard. This was the first take. There are a few missed notes but I figured it was about as good as I would get it tonight. :D

Well, we hear the results of matching a very schweeeet sounding guitar with a really great player. It doesn't get any better than this campers.

Thanks very much everyone! Your kind words are very encouraging to me.

Poki - You have great taste in guitars!  :D  I have found playing guitar to be a never ending learning process.

Zmony - The song was written by Jerry Reed. It's called "Blue Finger".

Tom - You are too kind!

Bluzdulcimer - The ADK mic is a little known hidden Gem. (At least I think).
My Vienna Edition model is a large diaphragm condenser. ADK's are made in China and seem to be of high quality. I have a Rode NT1 and much prefer the ADK. The S51 or Vienna Edition are around $225.00 new.
They were recommended to me by the owner of a local Bluegrass establishment. He has the Top name's in Bluegrass perform at his building every Saturday night. A few of these bands were bringing these ADK's with them for live sound and also using them to record their CD's. Knowing how important a good mic is to a Bluegrass player, I decided to try one.

The mic was about 18" from the guitar where the neck meets the body.

I've got a Koa/Spruce parlor but mine doesn't sound like that... could be my playing.  

I want to sound like that when I get better!   :o

Gosh...I thought I was listening to Stephen King. (The guitarist....not the writer.) Very, very cool!
