Since the regulars see the fatal words 'sm57' continuously on this forum, I thought I

Mics: Shure SM57 x2 for Acoustic guitar (Tanglewood)
Shure SM57 x1
Electric Guitar (Fender 72 Thinline)
Bass (Fender Jazz) was DI’d through
an Ashdown Combo
Beginning soundscape is from Logic Pros free licensed media
Room: Bedroom’s and Spare Room Studio with light dampening.
DAW: ProTools LE + Mbox 2 Interface
Monitors: Mackie MR5's

Oh and any comments on my recording from any pro's would be
