Default Blues guitar improvising with a looper

Hey ! Got myself a new looper. Decided to test it out. Here is an original bluesy jam. Feedback of all kinds and tips/pointers sound or technique is great.

Great stuff. Good job. Don't be afraid to switch/intermingle scales. Take your existing PM scale and move it 2 up or 3 down and break out of that box.

Ill think about that ! Thanks for the tip. I try go mix the major and minor pentatonics but I use way more of the minor pentatonic

Love the rakes & the chord tones !!
That looper is a handy thing.

Sounds really nice.

Yep, loopers are great practice tools. My Zoom G5 has a cool one with a built in simple drum machine. I need to get back to using it...I used it a lot to practice solos I learned and to work on improvised parts.

I liked the rhythm track you laid down to play over as much as the cool mellow licks you played over it. Very nice!!!

Damn thats cool; that you have a built in drum track in yours! I have the d3 duet looper from xvive.

Because the looper has a beat associated with it, when you hit the pedal at the end of the loop, it creates the end right on the beat even if you didn't hit the pedal precisely at the right time.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts on my GTGP post.

I just love my looper pedal! It also has a built in drum with 10 different sounds and I just recently noticed what you mentioned, lol. I just didn't use the drum until recently.

Mine is a Boss RC-3 and I every now and then copy the recorded tracks to the PC through a USB cable, or the other way around. I actually recorded my GTGP Swamp Blues downloading the BT on the internet, then loading it to the pedal and have it playing on my amp as I recorded over the phrasing.

Funny thing is that since I don't have a timeline of the track while recording, the track kind of suprised me when it finished, lol.

Excellent practice tool!
