  • Looping a guitar part

    Now that we are a four piece, we are trying to figure out ways to make songs we played as a 5 piece work as 4...

    One of those is eye of the tiger.

    I can play the chugging solid note that plays throughout the verses, but I'm also the singer and I find my mind preoccupied with trying to keep exact time, and trying to sing to be difficult.


    I have a boss RC20XL loop station, and I was wondering how easy it would be to play through that part during the intro, and then have it loop for the rest of the song so I can free sing the rest of the time, and the other guitarist will play the rest of the song. 

    He said it would be easier to do with a delay pedal set to infinite. suggestions? I haven't played with this loop station much yet, but I can't seem to use it as easy as people are making it out to be.

    Looping is awesome, the only thing is the drummer has to play along with the loop, and it only takes a fraction of a millisecond to be off. I have the RC2 and an outboard pedal, with a "live" drummer that is willing to listen and follow Your loop it would work great.

      It's going to be difficult. Not only do you have to be PERFECT when you set the loop from record to play, your drummer has to be dead nuts too.
