Re: Fighting the temptation to noodle

It's actually more challenging and interesting to have a single note 
background, then you can try all sorts of modes over it.  If you can do 
asynchronous loops you can have one with a single note background, then 
other looper brings in a chord every once in a while to change the 
structure.  And those can vary in the performance according to your taste.

Subject: Fighting the temptation to noodle

In endeavoring to strip my rig down, I've been playing with just the 
in the Line 6 M13. This is fun, but I find myself recording a loop and 
just leaving it be while I play over the top. From a live looping 
standpoint, this feels like cheating. Everything turns into one long 
guitar solo over a static loop which isn't really what I was after. Yes, I 
could go play with half speed and reverse and sometimes I do, but I still 
end up back at the soloing over a static loop point fairly quickly. Any 
advice? Does feedback work well enough on the M13 to make it viable for 
evolution? (I'm finding my existing expression pedals don't seem to give 
that precise control with Line 6 equipment.) Or is it time to wire the EDP 
back into the set up?
