The Creative Looping Handbook is a practical guide to help you get the most out of your practice time, jam sessions, pre-production arrangements and live performances using a loop recorder pedal.
The looper pedal gives us a great way to remotely record our ideas without a microphone or computer. We can create backing tracks in any key and tempo for practice time, jam sessions, arranging overdubs and even playing live with or without a band.
The loop recorder is one of the most affordable and powerful tools we can use as a guitarist, as they're easy to integrate into any pedalboard set-up and come in a range of footprint sizes and feature options. Recording quality is of a very high standard and comes in mono or stereo formats.
I'll get you up and playing fast with a complete understanding of the loop pedal switch functions and volume settings, and I'll also show you how to set-up your signal chain to get the best sonic results. I'll give you tips on how to plan your arrangements, and most importantly, show you how to precisely time your recording execution for seamless playback.
In addition, I've prepared three main practical performance sections for a little inspiration:
All of my performances will be tabbed and notated, plus you'll get audio tracks for jamming over with some performance and scale tips as an added bonus.
