I second that! My son has been a huge Benny Goodman fan since his teens and this gives me even more background.

I just tripped over some video footage of FG giving some interesting visual evidence:

The occasional mic (saw an SDC among others live).

The inch high action...

The "up, out and over" firing of the guitar almost flat in his lap.

I use the lapel condenser with the gooseneck clipped on the tailpiece. I found it to be the best setup for me. I get many compliments on how natural it sounds. Thanks Jonathan Stout for your blog and sharing what works.

Awesome! I know it works for me, and I'm pretty sure it's the best way going, but it's always good to know when it works for someone else.
