    Hey. I read somewhere about jaco using a delay pedal thing too loop bass lines and then jam along with them onstage or something. I'm not sure exactly what i would need in order to to do this. Does anyone know what i'm talking about who can help me out? I found something called the Ibanez DE7 Stereo Delay on Music123.com but I dont know it that will do it. thanks
  2. not sure of delay pedals doing this, i know some do infinite delay, but i am not sure if you can solo over them.
    But look into loopers. like the boomerang. Boss makes one, Line 6 makes one. on this forum, there are many threads concerning loopers...i suggest taking a look at them!

    I think Jaco was using a Delay with a hold. BuuuuuuuuuuUuUuut Loopers are much cooler. You can layer infinite tracks.

    Just like Jaco did... (about four layers in general when he was on solo again.)

    How cool must it have been, some fruitcake of a bassplayer who kicks ass on stage alone, with al that cool music and creative stuff. When he did it the first time I can imagine people almost couldn't believe it. But what the hell I'm talking.... I'm 24... was about 7 when he died. :bawl:
