This is my rendition of an old Jazz standard, Autumn Leaves. I recorded this one back at the end of 2010 I believe. I had just found a great deal on an old, post WWII, archtop guitar and had to get it. Indeed, it needed a bit of tender love and care but I got it fixed up, threw a new bridge on it, new strings, set the action, and voila! That sucker sounded and played great! I love the tone of the archtop, and the fat neck fits nicely in the palm of your hand. This one still remains in my personal collection. I decided to record a bit with it to see what kind of sound I could get out of it so I hooked up a shure sm-57 instrument and put it fairly close to the lower f-hole. This seemed to be the best place for the mic without getting feedback. I then recorded vocals through a shure sm-58 vocal mic. The recording went fairly smooth and I was rather satisfied with the way it turned out. Since the I only recorded a few tracks, mastering was a breeze. However, I am thinking of re-recording with my current setup. It may be a few weeks before I get to it but do keep an eye out for it! As for now, this works and I thought I would share.
