Just do a couple of hundred Hail Maries and you should be OK.

I just don't know, whether the null on the side is more effective than the top.
So you went for version 1? Which mics did you use and what mic came into play, when you changed your setup?
Thanks for clarification. Maybe it's not my geometry day today
Hi Ronald,

Yes, as I said, I tilted the pair of fig 8s downwards for the guitar, so as per your option 1. The nulls on a fig 8 are as 'effective' all around (mic patterns are 3d!). The fig 8s you use are pretty irrelevant in this regard (although, obviously, different mics sound different), so getting into which mics I used for this null example and now use seems pretty irrelevant in general and, indeed, to the thread Daniel started. If interested in the approach, try whatever you have/can acquire, be they ribbons, SDCs or LDCs.

Thanks Roland,
now it is clear. Except the mic choice
