A variation is to start with "Record" but close the loop with  
"Overdub". This will even out some of the initial attack of the note/ 
chord played. I find this technique especially rewarding when playing  
with reverb as part of my instrument sound. If you do not do it like  
this you will end up with a loop that starts with no reverb tail and  
every time the loops starts over you will hear the reverb tail  

But, as David Kirkdorffer said, with a guitar it's easy to play a  
"fade in" attack. Use the volume knob or a volume pedal.
