VIVA LA VIDA – Keyboard Loop Pedal

 

Well I hadn’t made a Coldplay cover in a few weeks so I figured I had to do something about that. But this time I wanted to do something different!

Loop pedals are all the rage at the moment (probably something to do with Ed Sheeran) but I only ever really see people using them with acoustic guitars (again… probably something to do with Ed Sheeran). Continue reading
