The recording tells me that certain passages lack confidence, that the brief foray up to the fifth fret needs a bass line, that a full melody line an octave higher might sound good (although in this key it takes you up to the 12th fret). That will also be quite a lot of extra work. I'm going to be working on the idea of adding a mandolin instead.
The recording was made with a high-end sound card, but you don't need one to make decent home recordings that tell you more or less what you actually sound like rather than what you think you sound like when you're playing.
This recording was made with two mics, one for the guitar and one for the room.
I like the "Wave" tune it has a sound similar to what J.Buffett plays in his songs.
Thanks, MB, I was aiming for something a bit closer to the jazz era but that's a nice compliment.
I'll be recording more shortly. Now working on a longer version of What A Friend.
Thanks for checking it out.
