As another player of ability that could be charitably described as
"moderate", it seems to me that looping often works well with simple
ideas and phrases. Fast and complex playing doesn't usually loop well.
It's kind of like distortion on a guitar--complexity gets lost in the
noise, but simpler things can sound more interesting because of the
harmonic complexity that distortion (or looping) adds. So, no
apologies, there are some truly inspired ideas in your post. It's the
ability to think to makes truly great musicians, not virtuosity IMHO.
