I have a question concerning recording acoustic guitar either direct or using a mic.
In my recent project the dominant instrument so far is the acoustic guitar played live and may join it with JABB guitar if I can get things running up to par.
Quite simply, squeaks. The squeaky sound your fingers make when changing chords quickly. I don't mind them too much until it gets obsessive and they overshadow the music and that's all you seem to notice.
I agree it mostly remains within the technique of the guitarist however, some times it seems to be unavoidable.
Here's the question; How do you deal with the problem of "squeaking" guitar in your recordings? Am I correct in assuming one can quiet squeaks down but only to a certain extent? Is there a way to isolate the frequencies and cancel them out? Did Charles Lindberg really eat a chicken sandwich while crossing the ocean? Will Debby ever get the man she wants? Find out in the next episode of "The Edge Of Wetness".
Very curious to hear some of your insight, comments, and concerns.
AND DON'T SAY "OIL THE STRINGS"!
