"G" series parlor out to play
« on: September 17, 2013, 05:00:42 PM »
I rarely take my old Washburn/Lyon and Healey parlor out to play.  But last week I took her out.  The open mic host took the shot below.



The old girl sounded terrific.  Mic is the old reliable, classic Shure SM 57.  The tune I'm playing is Jesse Fuller's "San Francisco Bay Blues".  Kazoo is always a fun touch.

Ah.... Ship, as noted in the post.  It's mic'ed.  Old reliable Shure SM57.

FWIW Unless you have a good sound guy, good equipment and a bit of patience mic'ing an acoustic guitar is usually more trouble than it's worth.  For regular gigging and particularly for open mics a good pickup is a much better approach.  The host at this OM is a very good sound guy and has a SM 57 all set up and ready to go.

The Lovely Wife gave me an electric kazoo a couple of Christmases ago. You can run it  through mixer or amp FX.  :D Awesome toy!

Wasn't sure Keel  if the guitar was mic'd or if you were talking about you being mic'd can't really see it in the picture.ship
