We were pleased to have local sound engineer Phil Hargreaves attend our meeting on 28th July and present a seminar on Recording the Guitar. The meeting was well attended and very informative on this tricky area. Phil’s exensive knowledge on all aspects of recording mean that we may extend the seminar into a series of workshops through the year if Phil can schedule the time. Some of the principles Phil dicussed can be read about here: http://magazine.dv247.com/2011/07/27/recording-acoustic-guitar (though as Phil has pointed out, the article is primarily concerned with steel stringed acoustic guitars).
As well as recording, Phil runs an independant label and produces improvised and experimental music himself: http://www.whi-music.co.uk/
