The reason I used unplugged electric guitars was to establish a syncopated groove and tempo. I tried an acoustic guitar but even that was "too big" a sound . All this was done for Steve Perkins
to have something more than a click track to record to. I had Dave do three of these tracks of guitars then I bounced them together. I used a 451 mic ( my favorite for acoustic guitars because
it is the most "flat " mic I have. I compressed all three together thru a 1176 ( I like the 1176 because of its attack time-I set the attack very slow so as to be percussive) These guitars were not
ment to in the final mix however they did end up being used for more swing.
