      I'm taking the responsibility of recording the demos for my band, and one song requires the rhythm guitar to have a thick distortion. Basically the guy who wrote it in our band likes more punk styled stuff like the offspring (not really my cup of tea), so I've run into some issues. I have a Roland 100 watt amp, and am attempting to record with an Audio Technica AT2020 condenser microphone. Everything I've recorded with this mic so far has turned out fantastic (acoustic, vocals, piano, etc), yet I can't seem to get electric to go well. Basically it sounds really muffled, and distant if that makes sense. The mic is placed around 4 to 6 inches away from the speaker, and pretty much in the center in order to get a brighter sound. I was wondering if any of you guys have advice on placement, EQ, or anything else that you think may be helpful.

Any advice?


Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
