Had gotten away from playing for a while. Just got bored and maybe even a bit frustrated in the way I was doing things. Needed to throw a spark in there. So added a Beat Buddy and a Looper to the arsenal and all of a sudden I am back in the game and having fun again. It really does help when you have the beats and with the looper its like having two or three guitar players at your disposal. Highly recommend these two pieces of gear, not necessarily these brands, but any beat maker and a looper for those that for whatever reason, play mostly on their own.
