Pluck a week 3

This one is a bit long. Apologies.
I use the Boss-20XL Loop Station again, but I don't have a title like last time.
There are four parts, so it drags on.
Around 1:40 it all comes together though, kind of.
If you're a pal, you'll play the whole thing.
If not, go fuck yourself.
Just kidding.


Also, to Apple:
You took away video effects in iMovie so now I have to use Quicktime filters? They are awful.
Did everyone see how bad that was?
I recorded this with a great camera, the Olympus Tough TG-1.
The audio and video are much better than my iDevices. It saves a .MOV file.
I can import that into iMovie...fine, but I can do nothing to improve the visual appeal (much needed since the camera placement is only for audio).
Alright, so I'll try one of Quicktime's filters..."Old Film" - "Hair" effect:
I see my video's colors degraded and an occasional white vertical line slide around...cool?
It took 50 minutes to encode, so...awesome.
That's what you (imaginary) people (who actually take interest in my guitar plucking) get.
Peace & Love.
Unless you're into war & hate. Then go fuck yourself.

All parts are recorded with a Gibson ES339 through a Vox AC15C1.
The first part uses an EHX Pog 2 and Boss CH-1 at the bridge setting.
The second uses just the Boss CH-1 at the middle setting.
The third uses the Boss CH-1, Fulltone OCD, and Catalinbread Semaphore at the neck setting.
The fourth uses all of the pedals in the third, plus the EHX MicroSynth at the neck setting.
