Day 9. How to make your first live loop 

1. Get reunited with your little gear

2. Plug everything in 

3. Only hear the piercing silence

4. Watch tutorials in tears

5. Read forums in despair

6. Google "meditation"

7. Get back to the thing

8. Watch another tutorial while fidgeting with the interface

9. Realize you turned one knob in the wrong direction

10. Feel dumb

11. Turn the knob 

12. Make your first live loop

It's the very beginning of Michael Kiwanuka's "Love and Hate" — this song is mesmerizing and perfect for future looping. I still need to figure out how to synchronize the drummer and be flexible with loop lengths, but hey, I came to the bridge!
