Selecting the right microphone for any given guitar performance is key to obtaining an exceptional tone. Just like a guitar or an amp, each microphone will colour the sound with its own character, ranging in difference from the subtle, to the extreme. So, how do we make the right choice?

As somebody who has been teaching guitar for a number of years, I must have made a million mistakes. I will probably make a million more. However, if I can help a few of you to learn from my mistakes, without making them yourselves, then great! If you read this and feel that one of the points in this list could be what’s causing communications with your pupils to suffer, I hope that identifying the problem will help you to sort it out.
If you have been playing the guitar for any length of time you know that learning to make new sounds is an exciting part of the never ending learning process.
