I'd agree with your assessment. It sounds pretty decent except for the kick not having any power to it. If you added a kick mike you would help out a lot.

Experiment with your mic' placement. Try putting the mic up front a bit more. Being that you are playing directly into that wall, that will have acoustic effects all on it's own.

You might even want to try micing from as far in front as you can, using one mic on the L and one on the R.

Another tip- balance your playing so that it sounds good to the mics. Think about balancing so that you don't need a kick mic.

That's how they did it in the old days. You should have so much control over your own sound!

And that's a real learning environment for you to experiment within. Cool!
