Introduction to Looper Pedals: If you’re a solo guitarist, you’ll probably want to use a looper pedal. It is a valuable tool for most guitarists as they can loop back on their recordings. It’ll allow you to record riffs and chord sequences and then play the recordings back in a loop. Moreover, you’ll be able to add or overdub it to the loop by adding an unlimited parts over the top of the initial recording, and it’ll be added to the loop.

Years ago, I took lessons from Art, My influence is mostly blues based rock like Zep and Clapton, later I formed my own band and released some tracks. The lessons I took from Art gave me the ammo to improvise and compose on the guitar.
