Thank you all for taking time out for a look and to post comments.
@Thejoechoi I am drawn to that eastern sound, not sure from where that springs. Generally speaking I am into 60s/70s rock with all the melting pot of influences and the blues.
@LBro I’ll say ‘never say never’ but at this stage I’d not anticipate live looping. Mostly it is a fun way to develop play-grade and step up my play with the electric and amp. Could I one day end up with a multi-fx in front of the looper playing live with the electric, rather than acoustic camp-fire play and sing, who knows. After all when I took lesson one of the BC I never imagined much of what I do today.
@tony thanks for sharing your experiences
@DarrellW I wondered if you might offer some thoughts on particular modes. At this stage I will stay with the ‘if it sounds good’ approach and not worry to much about the theory as to why it might sound good. As you say, nice to just noodle around.
@adi_mrok no diagram in front of me. I know position 1 of major and minor pentatonic and decided to stay in that area of the neck. There was some noodling around before recording this, in which I settled on some phrases/ideas. I have picked up on the idea of playing other notes not in the pattern, so not scared to try that out when noodling. And then the final noodle was playing around with those freestyle.
@batwoman appreciate the encouragement and support, it’s all just fun, learning, and becoming an improved player over time
@Mari63 I imagine I’d also think your playing was better than you though it was if given the opportunity to listen
@J.W.C I know people often say a looper is the first pedal to acquire, and I’ve also bought into the idea. And in the way in which things go, thanks to Ivan’s kindness I now have one. And that’s kind of how the whole adventure has been for me, kind of a straddle between going with the flow and being driven by pursuing set goals. Seems like things just happen when they are meant to happen, when I am ready. And yes, Am or a sus may well be tried out.
I’m happy with this effort as a first effort. In it I discovered it was easier to play the chord (in time chords) over the bass notes and drum, easier to pick up the start of the looped pattern (in this case two bar pattern).
Lots to learn and experiment with. Being able to set the amp up for a decent lead tone on bridge pup and using the guitar volume and tone to create tones for the bass pattern and rhythm with the neck pup presents a whole world of opportunity for discovery. Maybe next time I’ll see how using the single coil-split option on the neck pup for rhythm and full HB for bass may aid in balancing those two parts on the loop.
