I’m a big fan of solo looping. As a guitarist, the possibilities have greatly expanded with the development of great loopers. Layering ambient loops to craft a sonic world is super fun and fulfilling. Also, I like that many of the loopers don’t store or save, so you have to be ‘on it’ as a musician. Screwing up a loop can be somewhat disastrous, but so is messing up in a band situation in a lot of respects.
The other day, I came across a great video by Evert Zeevalkink where he put together a nice little piece. As guitarists interested in effects, I thought a few of you would be interested, as well as possibly being inspired by this video:
Evert used the following pedals for this piece:
–Boss Blues Driver – Keeley Mod
–Keeley 4 Knob Compressor
–Carl Martin TremO’Vibe
–Ernie Ball VP JR
–Strymon El Capistan
–Strymon Blue Sky
–TC Electronic Nova Delay
–Digitech JamMan Stereo
Let me know what you think about this piece… as well as what you think of looping solo performances in general by commenting below!

Really nice piece of music and beautifully performed (couple of bum notes but still damn good) I find loopers are not only a great creative tool but they help hone your skills for the studio/gig situation as well. Priceless.
Lovely video, thanks for sharing.Reply
