Thats what I experienced. When I started the LOOP POOL CD project last
year, I got 4 tapes, 3 of them from acoustic (one nylon) guitar players.
The work is very different from electric carpets. The music sounds rather
"normal", like 2 or three guitar players. One piece is a flamenco where
just the taping on the guitar top is looped.
