I enjoy putting on live shows with loops, mainly because as a bassist, there are few opportunities to play 'busy' because a steady bass line needs to keep the flow going. The pedal allows me to set up a solid groovin' bass line, and then begin to build chord forms or solos around them, all on the spot for the audience. In time, I would like to find out other 'loop groups' out there, and possibly put on more shows with my drum/bass project Two Man Bandit.
