What is Guitar Looping?

Guitar Looping is the art of recording your guitar playing in real-time to create and perform short pieces of music. These short pieces of music are called loops because they continuously repeat around on themselves in a loop.

A loop usually consists of numerous guitar parts that build and layer upon each other in a very musical way until a full piece of music is created. Guitar Looping is also live and performance-based, meaning that it is done in one take, in real-time.

All this is achieved through the use of a guitar, an amp, and a Looper Pedal.
