Re: Livelooping with a band..amazing!

hmmm... it was original the first time he did it... but now he's done  
it too many times... too many copycats... agreed... but, the fact  
stands that he invented a ton of techniques on the guitar that a lot  
of people learned from. Maybe he's finished innovating but that's no  
reason to put him in a museum. He's still alive for god's sakes...  
aren't museums for dead things?
