Hi all,

  Regarding recording accoustic guitars (regular steel string and bass)
is there a trick of some sort to minimize the sound of fingers sometimes
swishing on the strings ?  A bit of Finger Ease gets rid of some, but
there's some of that sound that still creeps from time to time.  Proper
technique might not always be a solution.  I'm more thinking along the
lines of some notch filter but have no idea of the frequency (nor which
filter in Ardour) to use, that is, if it's worth a try.  I use a
M-Audio microphone, which might not be the best, but then I'd need some
convincing to believe that a top quality mic would actually do
something concerning this.  Perhaps better focus on the sound source.

  Any suggestions/ideas welcomed.
