I've long said that there is a great opportunity out there for experienced 
Loopers to offer teaching services or create tutorials and teach looping. 
People are obviously willing to pay. What are you waiting for?

It has nothing to do with the Echoplex, that just happens to be a looping 
device that offers a more complete range of looping functions than other 
loopers. People want someone to teach them looping, not Echoplex. People 
who think they want someone to teach them Echoplex really need someone to 
teach them Looping. About the only person who seems to have gotten this is 
Andre LaFosse.

Piano makers don't teach piano. Guitar makers don't teach guitar. Tuba 
makers don't teach tuba. I'm sure they would like to, but it is hard 
to stay on top of making the damned things. There is a whole educational 
industry devoted to teaching these instruments anyway. Why not looping? 
off your ass and go do it.

Are you saying people who play to bigger crowds are not very intelligent?

couldn't resist. :-)
