RE: why pot before looping?

Title: RE: why pot before looping?

my take (or toke?) on this is that there's simply way too much hardware, and too many notes, to risk entering a playing/recording situation with one's senses in any way compromised.

I think you should do whatever you have to do to get out there, then come back and try to describe the experience with all y'r wits about you. then play it back on the big speakers, have a bifter and see if what you've just recorded does the job or not. stoned or drunk, we become mesmerised by all the flashing lights and "let's just leave this lot looping around and around while we absorb the details" which takes three times as long and somewhat detracts from the experience of the non-stoned listener.

not only does it mess with y'r attention span, but also what you're paying attention to- save the spliff for the listen-back session.
