Yes nice, the switches dont bother me but that hat is pretty ugly, can you deal with that please? And if you would lower the action on that gitar then you could hold it up like regular folks and you wouldnt have to mash the strings down with that chunk of rebar, you could use your fingers!!
Other than that, you are getting close.

So the typing might not be my best!
I agree though, the loud sounds from the foot switches disturb me a bit, even though I like the live feel a lot! :)

Bill's piece was so haunting and moving!
Made my morning: wonderful playing and the "live" sound made it even more amazing, that it could conjure such ethereal atmosphere!

that was lovely!
surely taking an audio feed to the computer and then merging it with the camera visual would be a better bet? if you're running a mac, you can do this in iMovie.
one thing that bill does extremely well and that regular guitarists don't have to contend with, is that the fact that bill's lap is moving around as he's hitting buttons...and therefore his instrument is moving around as well!
bill - have you tried post processing the loops from the LP1? this kind of quantize replace stuff sounds awesome with some synced delays and filters on it. if you have a delay that can receive midi clock, you can send it some from the LP-1 and bingo - instant fun!
anyway, that was really great...more please!

Lovely music Bill!
Can you get a direct signal feed to the camera? The footswith clicking kinda spoils the atmos a bit..

This lap steel improv using the Looperlative LP-1 makes liberal use of the quantize replace function. I'm juggling 4 different tracks of quantized loops , and creating the form as I go, and I must admit that I had some content that i had already recorded before i pressed play on my Zoom Q3 . The idea was to have each loop be a chord made up of quantized notes so that toggling between them creates the chord progression. I'm continually evolving each of the loops by adding new content as I replace the old.
