Re: "Loop" interacting with the rest of the music.

I think it is possible to create loops with a groove even if one's playing 
isn't the most rhythmically together.  Unfortunately I think it becomes 
luck than otherwise.  I have twisted loops around, creating new rhythms 
would close to impossible to describe or recreate.  And on the other side, 
I've played with musicians from all sorts of ability and genres that have 
created grooves that fall completely out of their regular experience.

Still, sitting inside of a solid groove created by skilled musicians 
listening and responding to one another goes far beyond almost anything 
I've experienced.  I personally find that there is a rhythmic push and 
that happens, between even two musicians, that distinguishes  a nice 
from a GROOVE.  Or something like that.
