I always enjoy your videos Mike. Can you please let us know what amp you use for these recordings, or is it direct?

Thank you Mike. I use a little Yamaha THR10. Not a gigging amp. Very inexpensive and you can play at very low levels and it still sounds good. I set the amp to the acoustic setting and record directly into the computer via USB. It is really as simple as that. The only other thing I do is never set the volume above about 60% on the guitar! Mike

Thanks for this Mike, nice to know that home recording seems to have come a long way in terms of user-friendliness since I was involved.
