Ive been enjoying your lessons and noticed you use some kind of loop pedal, I know nothing about them but they seem like they would be a fun thing to play with and also practice my scales and leads over what ever chord progression I can come up with. I currently have two amps both fenders, 65R and a G Dec 30, the G dec is a good practice amp and has some recording capability but the recordings sounds awful and is a pain to use. I was hoping for some advice or demo on a what kind of Station / Pedal/ Recorder you might recommend for someone who is totally new to them.I live a long way from a music store and when I do go there they tend to push me towards what they want to sell not necessarily what I need which is how I ended up with the 65R instead of the practice amp I really needed if you know what I mean.

Scott, great question! I’ve used many loopers in my day and have come to learn quite a bit about them. I used to use a Boss RC-2 looper, but it sounds too “digital” and plastic. The looper I use now is called a Ditto Looper. It’s really simple, only has one button and one knob. It’s not the greatest looper for playing live with a band, but for home practice, writing and messing around with chords, it’s perfect. Check it out (they also make a larger more complex version), it’s cheap and will last a long time, and sounds great! Good luck, let me know what you end up getting.
I was looking at the Boss Rc3 they sell for around AU $235 and the Ditto are about AU $170 both on ebay. So I am definitely interested in the Ditto and the reviews Ive read since your reply also agree with you regarding the play back quality. Thanks for your input much appreciated.
