playing. By playing the same note on a different string you overdub it
into the next looper etc. He, he... playing that monster looper would
demand more brain exercise than finger exercise ;-)

Exciting stuff! I once used a MIDI guitar for looping samples set up
as one sample per MIDI Channel and string, but with this pick-up you
should be able to do it with real audio (which IMHO is cool with
