RE: [Harp-L] New looped recording using Digitech RP355

Like that fade-out too!
That whole-step wammy patch can be used to... Borrow heavily from all sorts
of slide/power-chord guitar motifs.
 Long live Rock Harp!!

Hi all,

I just posted a new recording to my site at a live
performance of "The Road Out of Here," lyrics and music by yours truly.
This piece uses a pre-recorded drum loop as the foundation for a full band
arrangement, built on the looper one part at a time.  All sounds besides the
drums are courtesy of a Seydel Session Steel harp in A (I really like that
harp), processed through a Digitech RP355 running my patches.  I recorded
the performance as it happened on my Zoom H4, parked a few inches from the
grill of my Peavey KB2 amp.

I'm sure that this is a unique sound and approach for solo performance with
harmonica.  A number of players, such as Son of Dave, Brandon Bailey, and
Lonesome Dave Ferguson are using loopers to create harp, voice, and
percussion ensembles that put the harmonica in a fairly traditional context
(with the caveat that there's nothing very traditional about a looper). My
approach is to build an electric rock band out of harmonica parts processed
through the 

I'm continuing to build a repertoire in this style that includes both
originals and covers, so stay tuned for more recordings.  In the meantime,
check out "The Road Out of Here."

And Happy New Year to all.

Regards, Richard Hunter
