    Short acoustic jazz guitar - mix advice

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi everybody,

    Short track of an acoustic guitar idea that I am working on. I am interested in hearing your mix comments and any ideas for improvement. Some things I noticed in my car stereo: the bass is either too loud or too muddy and there are some timing issues.....what do you think?

    Thanks in advance,

    mcmd

    Very nice feel and organic sound in the lead playing.

    The backing tracks sound very electric and artificial in comparison. Replace them immediately with ac bass and ac rhythm gtrs with no effects.

    Just for interest, what gtr/mic/mic position/pre were used for the lead?

    Glad that you like the lead playing.

    The backing guitar tracks are the same acoustic guitar as the lead, with a chorus plug-in.
    I only have electric bass, however I could reduce the drive from the sansamp DI. That makes the sound more thin, and ...well like a DI bass guitar!

    Interesting, because I was probably going to reach for some electric guitars next, and move the tune in that direction....

    Lead recording chain:
    Yamaha FG340 (1979)--> Shure KSM109-->DMP3-->JoemeekVC3Q
    Mic about 6" from the 12th fret.

    Thanks,
    mcmd
