Haha. I'm no pro at recording acoustic guitars (or even recording
with a microphone), so I'll do my best to describe my process.

I used two guitars; a Cordoba GK Studio for the nylon fingerstyle
parts and an Ibanez Exotic Wood series for the verses. The mic was
about 12-18 inches away from the guitar (closer when recording the
Ibanez) and pointed at the area where the neck meets the body.

For me, recording the classical guitar is a challenge because:
1. I'm not that good at classical fingerstyle (although the experience
has inspired me to spend more time with it)
2. The dynamics have to be *exactly* correct. If I started off
playing too quietly there was an audible "click" from the microphone
which would not be there if I put more emphasis on the first note.
Some notes are boomier than others so I would have to back off on
them.

I use a M-Audio Firewire Solo so it has a builtin pre-amp and phantom
power. I use the compression and EQ that are builtin with MixBus.
The reverb was using Tom Szilagyi's IR LV2 plugin.

Thanks for the interest!
