Big Mick is of course right as well. I've owned a 4 track Fostex in the past, and you can make very decent home recordings on it. The SM 57 will get the job done for you.

If you want that additional clarity and "spark" (that only myself, a few other guitar nerds, and some canine species can hear) then spend a few bucks more and get a condensor. It will make whatever you record sound a tad better.

If you send me a Personal Message (see the drop down box at the top of this page) with an e-mail address, I'll send you an MP3 of a fairly short solo acoustic recording I did using the method I described previously, recorded from my home studio.

Thanks for the compliment Mick. Much obliged.
