It's not so bad.  I have no problem with anyone.

It is important to understand that all music is intuitive to begin 
with.  I know we all know this.  My music condensed in that the 
classical guitar eats up form and spits out something different in the 
formal sense.  The range is small but the application of the instrument 
is solo so you have to work in extreme limitations.  A good thing.

The Church Lady is a woman who is tremendously restrictive and totally 
bound to church dogma.  Blood and guts=abandonment and subject to full 
momentary expression.  Canned=prepared before the execution.

Holy, boy I use language that I now don't care for.  Nothing is holy in 
my mind.  When people deem something holy it becomes fixed and cannot 
be changed.  That is what really bothers me about loops.  This is my 
job, to make a loop and change it into something that was unaccounted 
for.  Found art.

Composition is codified improvisation.  The moment carved into a 
sculpture of time.

Manuals aside, thanks for the great unit!  I'll get what I want out of 
it sooner or later.

5 years ago I had two Jammans and had different ideas about what a loop 
was.  It was easy and required not too much though just a foot and some 
hands, not much brain.  Now, with the EDP, my brain hurts because of 
the options and my differing thoughts about the loop.

A new adventure?  OK, I am a Boy Scout.
