Quote of the Day

“It’s really hard to record guitar, particularly distorted guitar. It’s one of those evasive things to try to get it on tape well. The first stage is to listen discerningly to what the sound source is really doing, and then figure out the appropriate mic and mic position.”- Eric Johnson
