How to be a Son of Dave?

If you had an amp, a mic, a cool hat, and feet--what else would you need to do Son of Dave stuff?

The real question is--how the hell is he doing that?

He's using a looper stomp box of some kind. You step on a pedal/switch to start recording, another to stop recording and continue playback, and another to stop and start the playback. The playback just loops over and over again, hence the name "looper". The trick is learning to do it in proper time with your playing. I believe more elaborate ones will let you record multiple tracks or loops. And yeah, Son of Dave is pretty ferreting cool.

I thought it was something like that--another great toy--another 400 bucks!

Yeah, that loop box SOD uses is a cool! I wouldn't mine trying one. If my wife wouldn't kill me for making so much noise!

Not sure which looper to get... some are very limited from what I've read.

SOD is using Akai headrush looper for looping frazes, Boss OC-2 octave pedal for bas lines and makes rhythm with his mouth and foot stomp.
I have also a smal looper Boss RC-2, it is realy fun to play with....
