BandAlternativeNew Age

Solo acoustic guitar instrumentals with live looping accompaniment.


Travis Hartnett is a Seattle-based musician who performs acoustic guitar instrumentals, accompanied by real-time sampling of his own playing. Using a foot-controlled loop sampler, he records a few bars of his playing--chords, a bassline or percussion generated from tapping and slapping the face of the instrument,and then seamlessly plays melodies and counter-melodies on top.
