Good grief, Charlie Brown

Looper pedals are fun.  They let you record a little snippet of music and then player other parts on top.  It's the same sort of thing I typically do when recording songs, but without stopping.  Finding songs that lend themselves to being built up a part at a time can be a little tricky, though.

I thought it would be fun to take the old jazz piano theme from Peanuts, "Linus and Lucy", and grind it out on a distorted guitar.  A google image search revealed that I'm not the first to imagine a punk rock Charlie Brown:

The guitar is a $50 Peavey "Rockmaster" that I've gutted and reworked.  The pedal is a zoom $50 multi-effects unit.
