Another archival piece but not as old

Here is Brian May (yes) demonstrating two part close delay looping. The first demo is very Queen-y and he explains why an dhow. He even makes a tonal mistake (the thing that Michael Peters name-check Fripp on in his intro piece), but he recovers  and admits to it.

Then he does something interesting - someone in the audience asks if it works without distortion - essentially I suppose "can you play that way and not be Queen-y" and he does, and he plays a lovely short piece of close-looping which sounds nothing so much as the wonderful bit from Fish Rising by Hillage which is almost the archetypal close-looping - I don't thing anyone did it better.

Anyway, May close looping in a Guitarist demo
