    I have been a musician for almost 12 years now and 10 of those years were spent as a complete metalhead. I recently decided it was time for change as so many other things in my life were also changing. Nylon guitar so far has been extremely rewarding to play and compose for, a complete breath of fresh air.. but don't get me wrong, I still love metal!

    Guitar used was a Cordoba GK Pro Negra mic'd with an Electro Voice RE-20 mic running into an SPL Crimson Audio Interface.

    I haven't seen any clips of RE-20 users micing up their acoustic guitars with one, as its mainly a vocal mic. I, however, was pleased with the result.. it seems to work well with the sound I'm going for.

    Nice playing. It's been years since I've owned a proper nylon string, but I always enjoy playing them. There is just a sound about a nylon string that you cannot get anywhere. Anyway, nice playing and I hope you have a lot of fun with it. Learning classical on a nylon opened up so many sonic doors for me and really helped to train my ear.

    Thanks man really appreciate it. I remember the first time I picked up a nylon guitar I immediately noticed how even ugly sounding intervals sound somewhat pleasing. Really great instrument to compose with.

    That's one thing I love about the classical guitar. It will handle a ton of dissonance before it starts to sound really nasty.

    I'm going through something similar, only instead of a nylon string, It's an arch top with one neck pickup.
