Mark, et al,

    Many thanks for all the feedback (mostly positive).  To paraphrase a
familiar quote - with many ears all mixes are easy ;-)  I forgot to
mention that I used LADSPA effects (not counting the electric guitar
which is through a V-AMP Pro) other than running the final master mix
through a BBE sonic maximizer.  I have taken most everyone's advice and
lifted the vocals (dropped some processing too).  Also, a tip of the hat
to Dave Phillips for introducing me to the Versatile Plate Reverb.

    The new version is in the same place -

    It's mostly the guitar - hand made Jose Morales classical, Spanish
cedar top, bookmatched rosewood back and sides, hand made rosette, all
wood binding.  It's a beautiful instrument.  I picked it up in Granada
Spain at Jose Morales' shop in 1978 for $150 (with case ;-)  I've played
it next to $3000+ Ramirez guitars and it blows them away.  I used a
cheap Marshall 603 condenser mic about a foot away from where the
fingerboard meets the body and a cheap Marshall 2001 about 3 feet away
and more towards the bridge.  I used a little Gverb on both sides and
some Tape Delay Simulation on the 603.
