Jam looping



true! although his music is not my cup of tea either i
do know that doing the one man jam band thing is also
hard work,playing song parts and alternating between
the arrangements plus singing,tapdancing and trying to
keep the audience interested without pushing the wrong
button.Ive done a bit of both and it can be more
challenging than sitting improvising freely.I actually
enjoy it seeing this type of looping more than seeing
a laptop or shoegazer although when listening only,my
interest at then end will still be based in the
quality of the music regardless of how it was made.
