Default Where to place 3 microphones?

I have a four channel mixer and room for 3 microphones. I have a four-piece kit (snare tom floor bass) with hihat, two crashes and a ride. I was wondering what the best combo and placement would be. I'm guessing one of the channels should be for the bass drum but I'm not sure about the other two. Two overheads? A snare and an overhead?

I got the mixer I'm talking about for my birthday (yay!) and I want to use it to start recording/practicing. I would like to talk about specific microphones, but I can find that somewhere else on the forum. I figured I should figure out placement the combo first.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks, nono
