Ive been buying guitar lessons (specific songs) from a guy I like on-line. He is willing to give me recommendations to improve my playing if I send him a video.

I’ve been trying to record myself playing an acoustic steel string guitar using my iPhone. The video is fine but the sound is bad (I mean other than my fat finger playing). It sounds very tinny.

I’ve also tried a $50 Logitech video camera. Again, the video was fine but the sound was much worse than my phone, often breaking up.

I just want to record a few songs, so I don’t want to spend a great deal. The mics I’ve seen on the web for recording music range from $400 and up. Way too much for my needs.

Is anyone know of an inexpensive mic that can make a decent recording of an acoustic guitar?
