Remember that Seinfeld episode “The Close Talker”?
It’s about this guy who stands WAY too close to the people he’s talking to.
So awkward…so funny.
The thing is, just about everybody knows not to stand so close to people. We know that being a Close Talker is weird and uncool.
But when it comes to miking up a guitar amp, a lot of us are “Close Mikers.”
But is that the only option? An SM57 shoved right up next to the grill?
Should we be experimenting with different placements?
