Re: les paul

We had the Les Paul discussion once. He certainly made it appear that what 
he was doing was real time loops. Some sources said it was really all 
pre-recorded tape parts that he triggered from the stage, which he just 
claimed as real-time loops to get the audience to accept it. It's still 
pretty cool, I think. Maybe that makes it one of the first examples of 
sampling, as opposed to looping.

And in some ways, if the audience is fooled it might as well be real.
