Ok, I am now able (mostly) to play a simple loop. I've found that if I want to repeat a longer pattern, I can play through it once, hit the pedal on the 1, then hit it again as I play the 1 on the bass when it comes back around. (as in my sig.) However, I am at a huge loss in trying to get around the real short phrase type loop! what I mean is a one timer type thing, where I have only one shot at it. Any advice or tips on the actual mechanics or a good way to conceptualize it would be greatly appreciated. It is improving with practice, but I'd hate to develop bad habits. I can see why people have more than one of these devices already! It would be so cool to be able to add and remove layers in any order.
