Default watched this guy for years, acoustic/loops/pedals

i'll pull up his channel when working in my glass shop and enjoy the sounds.
He has a bunch of video with different acoustics and some electric, I find his style tasteful.

Good stuff! I enjoy watching a great looper doing their thing. There's a local jazz/blues guy who's fascinating to watch. So entertaining. I bought a Boss RC-300 looper because I wanted to do the same. But it became very apparent that looping is a real talent in its own right. I haven't given up on it yet, but haven't put in the time to get good. I can improvise til the cows come home, but using a looper seamlessly, in time... is truly a challenge. There was a thread on TGP where a few guys were bagging on players who use looping. I would venture to guess they've never really sat down and TRIED to loop. It's hard! Even when your playing skills are more than up to the task. Punching in and out in the split millisecond of time, juggling various layers in and out, etc... it ain't easy! Some of the same guys like to bag on Ed Sheeran. Like his songwriting or not, he's crazy talented in his ability to keep an arena full of people entertained all by himself. I don't consider using a looper well to be cheating AT ALL. In fact... I've played solo guitar live on and off for decades, but haven't even begun to develop the skills to use a looper in a live format.

This is my belief and experience, as well. They are super easy to use, from a recording and playback perspective. But being able to start/stop in time, while playing, while singing was more than I could handle. Like anything, practice makes (close to) perfect, but I just never invested the time and sold it.

The player above truly does a great job of using it. Thanks for posting.

This guy is good! Not heard of him, but the looping works well. At times, the electric playing reminds me of Steve Hillage, which is no small compliment.
