Hi Bill-great trick...
only seen it done by David Gilmour on his live dvd 'in concert'.
he is playing 'shine on you crazy diamond' solo acoustic and for the solos
he would swell in a chord w/ a volped and that goes to a long delay(which
eventually does fades out) and he would play single notes over the
chord...it sounds really pristine and cool.
dont know if what he is doing is really looping 'cause its in 'delay'
