Sounds good - I'll have to check out your page..

Andy, it's interesting that you choose guitar over bass for looping - why's
that? I find that the range of sounds that I can get with a bass is more
than I could with a guitar (that's not to say that there aren't guitarists
doing interesting loop stuff, just that I can't imagine bass being so
limited as to have to switch to guitar for looping stuff...)

I use a 6 string fretless, 4 string fretted and 5 string 'amplicoustic'
bass, and get a pretty wide range of sounds... Have a listen to the real
audio on my site, if you like! :o)
