A breakthrough event in ones development as a musician is the ability to record multiple tracks and layer musical ideas upon one another. While there are many options for computer-based digital recording, even the simplest ones add friction that squelches the spontaneity and creativity of a live jam session. Enter the loop pedal: a device which allows a musician to stack layered musical tracks in real-time. Sean will talk about the various learning plateaus in musical development, how to break through each one and then demonstrate the use of a loop pedal for a soloist to create a full band sound live and on-the-fly.
