Hal Leonard Releases First Songbook for Looping Pedals


MILWAUKEE – Hal Leonard is proud to announce the release of the Looper Pedal Songbook, the first-ever songbook designed to help guitarists play songs using live looping.

Sales of looping pedals, which can record and playback a piece of music in real-time, have been booming.Once a novelty tool in music, looping pedals are now used by some of the most popular artists in the world. Even though their popularity has grown, very little has been written for beginners about how to perform using them.

The Looper Pedal Songbook, written by best-selling Hal Leonard author Chad Johnson, features 50 songs that will put players’ looping skills to good use, and are designed to be played with even the most modest looper on the market. Each arrangement is written for performance by a single acoustic or electric guitar but also allows for some experimentation to ensure players can take their looping to new heights. This book teaches how to start and end a loop, overdubbing, common routing directions, and loop setup. Regardless of looper-use skill level, the Looper Pedal Songbook will help expand a player’s looper knowledge and vocabulary.

 Songs for this songbook were carefully selected, specifically for their repetitive structure that make them perfect to perform using a pedal. Songs featured in the book span multiple genres, from classic rock hits like “All Along the Watchtower,” “Born on the Bayou,” “Twist and Shout,” and “Hey Joe,” to modern rock-pop favorites like “Happy,” “I’m Yours,” “Shape of You,” and “Viva La Vida.”

The Looper Pedal Songbook retails for $14.99. Both books are available from music and bookstores everywhere or by visiting www.halleonard.com. For a complimentary review copy, please email publicity@halleonard.com with your credentials and mailing address.
