I think it's interesting how he's making recordings.

 My recording setup at YouTube

Every day I get questions about my recording setup at YouTube. I have answered this so many times, I think I need a new keyboard.

I have 2 good microphones (AKG C480B*) that I place besides the Camera about 2 meters (6 feet) away from the guitar. I attach them to the camcorder (Canon HF 10) via a mixer. In the video editing software, I add some reverb. That is it really... I have a very good guitar of course! And have worked very hard all my life to have a good sound from my fingernails. In mylatest videos from around October 2010, I don't add reverb anymore since I play in rooms with good accoustics.

I hope this information will help you to get started!

Good luck!

*) 2 x $1000 per mic.

No magic, huh? :)

There's definitely magic. The magic is what puts things together. Causes him to practice like hell, to invest in expensive hardware, find rooms with good acoustics, probably suffer through early years of musician's career (which sucks big time), etc.

Well, what makes us do our jobs? Work overtime? Then come home and do more software engineering? Buy books on the subject? Learn all the time and improve? And so on and so forth. You may not have as lousy a pay as a programmer in your early years in the profession as a beginning musician, but I'd say what we do for a living is still a heck of a job.
