Re: EDP sync question

SWEET.  Thank you for the information.  Yes, more clinics.  Andre was 
very helpful, but you're right.  Those of us who are doing more "beat" 
oriented music synched to a sequencer would be helped by a different 
perspective.  I was actually confused in Andre's clinic about the synch 

But, to be honest with you, I'm going to wait for an endorsement deal 
with Aurisis Software to get Loop4 because I think I've got my finger 
on the pulse of the future guitar stars.  I'm both a shaker and a 
mover!  Could I get a sticker with it too?
