Those two were recorded with an iPhone. I recorded this one with a Panasonic GH6 which is a far better camera. It also records multiple channels 24 bit audio, so I was able a direct out from the THR amp and use a condenser mic:

Default Yamaha NTX3 crossover

I expected there to be more bleed in the vocal mic so I didn’t dial in any internal mic. The next time I’ll either dial in some internal mic or place the mic to pick up more guitar. I’m still trying to figure out the best approach.

I'm beginning to think that nylon string guitars are the greatest unkept secret for fingerstyle guitarists. You don't need to spend an arm and a leg to get one that sounds gorgeous, they don't wear or split picking nails to anything like the same degree as steel, they're kinder on the fretting hand, and they work across a broad range of styles, including blues.

Over the last few years, I've gone from having one to three nylon string crossovers and now have only one steel-string acoustic in my possession.

Sounds similar to my experience! Hmmm…

Great thread. Unfortunately it's timed with my most recent GAS thought: "hey, I wonder if I need a nylon string guitar?" Yikes! Get thee behind me.

Lol! Fortunately, a new nylon, even an expensive one, is way cheaper than any sort of arthritis treatment…at least that is how I am presenting it to my wife!

Not that it isn’t true!
