Dedicated to the memory of Russ Strutt (1947-2015). I recently inherited my father's guitar as well as his pedals, including a Boss RC-2 Loop Station. I recorded this music while trying to figure out how it works. Russ was a pretty fair country picker and wouldn't have used it like this, but I think he'd have been pleased to know I was doing something with it.
