GEAR: How to mike an upright piano?

Thu Jun 18 16:36:39 EDT 1998

For a quickie, down and dirty, low-volume gig using the house-owned upright
piano, what's a good way to mike it into the piano for a touch of sound
reinforcement through the PA?

Can I stick an SM57 inside the lid? Aimed at the soundboard?  I wanna keep
this really simple.
Any tips on mike placement?
