RE: another survey (wasRe: OT, but getting close to not-OT: guitar/sax improv sessions)
> 1) how many people on the list do solo non looping gigs?
So far, my only live performances have been at local open mics - solo
Stick, no looping. I've played/sung, and I've played prerecorded found
sounds which I've accompanied on Stick.

I tend to play single note melody lines, arpeggios and chords. Not able to
improv, unless I'm noodling at home.

Being a novice musician (attempted to learn to play music for the first
in my life a few years ago). No formal training. I simply do the best I
I hear things in far more complex ways than I'm capable of performing. I'm
planning some experimental/looping/computer projects with surround audio,
but might be awhile before I could perform them live - but that's my goal.
