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
