Re: new looper

On Block Island this summer, I saw a band play and it was 3 guitar  
players that sang. They were backed up by Kareoke discs. I couldn't  
believe it. They were really nice people that simply wanted to sound  
good. They played to a full house of very happy and enthused (and  
drunk) boaters who couldn't have cared a less. They then collected  
there 2 grand for 5 hours of work and left happy. Thats who this  
pedal is marketed to and they will sell a shitload of them.
Also, with all these play along devices like this and the fender g  
decs, we are in danger of creating a whole generation of guitar  
players with good time. Very Dangerous.
