Re: musicianship for solo loopers?



I couldn't agree more. I had the recent realisation that I have been 
overcompensating for the lack of a band on stage, visually speaking. 
Stefan 
has hit the nail on the head here. Don't get me wrong, visuals can be very 
complimentary in some instances but in my own experience they are 
distracting and a detriment to the musical performance. I guess there 
might 
be something fundamentally wrong with your performance if you rely on 
visuals to engage with the audience and vice versa.
