    Thanks.
    Not nearly a mural, just a 30" X 60" painting. If you want to see it finished and more: jeangaudet.ca. But I digress ...

    No, miking the front of the cone off-axis and more towards the edge than the center. Seems to get a good sound there (not too much high end). You can see the mic above the latch for the road case about 5 inches up on the right. You've got me thinking about trying from the back though... :)

    oh, OK I see it now! At the risk (risk? ha!) of hijacking the thread:

    Back when I did some recording, I always asked the engineer if he could mike the back of the amp. He would routinely do close-in off-axis miking on the front, but was happy to oblige me.

    I remember a session with a lovely brick wall - like the one behind your amp in the photo. I put the amp about 4' from the wall and tipped back a bit, aiming the speaker at the bricks. Had a close-in speaker at the back of the amp, and an ambient room speaker about 6' off the floor and about 6' from the wall. There are wonderful sounds to be found all around the amp; I sometimes wonder why everybody is so fixated on close-in speaker mics. Those mics miss everything about the sound of a player, a guitar, an amp, and a speaker in a physical space.

    That’s Dee Snider! Not just because it says so on his t shirt but it looks like him.

    Yeah, that's him.

    He does a charity bike run on LI every year, and at the end he gets up and does a few songs with a pickup band of LI musicians. I've gotten the call to be in the band for the past five years.

    It's always fun, except for the 'getting to the beach at 8:30 in the morning' part.

    Had a hard time finding any old guitar photos, but it was pretty neat looking through all those old pictures.

    Playing in my living room in Pittsburgh (1991 or so)...

    Wow that's great.

    I think they've released the recordings he did with Bernie Torme many years ago, I can't remember what they were called but they had a band together that never got their album finished. I've been a bit of a Torme fan boy so it's a useful reminder that I should go find that.
    Snider I particularly remember from Twisted Sister's first appearance on British TV and he stopped singing and wiped all his make up off. Doesn't sound like much but it made a big impression at the time.

    LOL. It’s funny how young my wife and I look in some of those old pictures. We were babies.
