Thanks, Claude.
That ALMOST works. Or rather, it works in terms of making that loop 
contain the
right stuff. Unfortunately, it seems like after I do the insert, the 
thinks that the end of the inserted section is now the beginning of the 
loop. So
when I hit Next Loop to go to the other loop (the background for playing 
on) it jumps to that loop after the B section rather than at the place 
where the
original beginning was. (I use SwitchQuant to switch between loops)

It happens like this:

I record in my three "A" sections:

A1  A2  A3

Then when that plays back, I hit and hold Insert while playing in the "B"
section. The end result that I want is this:

A1  A2  B  A3

But what I get is:

A3  A1  A2  B

It has redefined the beginning of the loop to be on the beginning of A3. 
So if I
hit Nextloop it changes loops in the wrong place. Maybe I still have 
set wrong, I dunno.

Maybe I should give up on trying to have different drums on the bridge. 
easier to deal with!
