Re: do you imagine pictures while playing?
Great Job Stuart,
I understand and feel what you say. When I get into looping I find
myself in a space that feels alive. It breathes and reacts to my thoughts
to a point that emotions roll off my fingers onto the guitar travelling
deep inside to the exterior sounds. Sometimes it overwhelms me to a point
that I fear doing it "full time" but also crave it. It is more than a
it has become an essential passion that must be fulfilled constantly. I
have a hard time explaining it but it still feels bigger and I feel it is
still growing in me. I hope it never ends
