Guitarist Dan Phelps has started a new video series called “On Looping” where he digs into the techniques and concepts he developed in over 20 years of looping experimentation.
In this episode, he talks about why looping is important, gives you his first impression of the new Chase Bliss Audio Blooper pedal, and gives you three tips you can use when learning any new looping device.
Here he took some time to explore how you can keep your loops from being static and uninteresting via using the Blooper’s built in Modifiers (aka effects). These Modifiers allow you to color and transform the loops you create so that you can evolve or even destroy what you originally recorded! This gives us the opportunity to think texturally, emotionally and compositionally with the loops instead of seeing them as only backing tracks.
