interesting. I was, and am, a heavy motif type player
also. looping came pretty quickly to me and made

i'm an improvosational musician in most ways and am
very honest about my limitations on my instrument. I
loop what I can to a good affect if possible. I'm also
a good (or at least getting there) instrumentalist, so
when I have nothing good to loop I simply play. works

wreck people's minds with, I go there.
