Look at the posts in tools of the trade/effects. Lots of advice in there.

My first pedal was a Ditto looper. My most used pedal is that same Ditto looper. It's simple, usually around $100 US, and does a great job. It doesn't come with a power supply (like most pedals) so you will need to get one.

Yeah, I'll second the recommendation for a Ditto looper. Very useful.

You'd do well to follow CT and JWC's advice- they've been around for a while and seem to know what they are talking about.
On the other hand, if budget is less of a constraint, Sairfingers and I (early intermediate?) have recently bought the Trio+, which is a looper but also 'band in a box' thingy, i.e. it will produce a variety of drum and bass lines to whatever you play. It's great fun and a useful practise tool.
There's a whole thread on it- if you're interested, check it out.

I too am a big fan of the Digitech Trio+.

CT has an earlier version - the Trio - which doesn't have a looper.
He uses his looper alongside it.
If you get the Trio+ you get an all-in-one pedal for looping, bass and drum accompaniment and much more.

Here is the thread Brian mentions:

Here is an earlier thread on the Trio CT started which does have some useful info and links in too.

Hey Folks, I'm not GREAT at 6 String guitar yet, beed playing almost 2 years, got my Ditto Looper (Single) a years ago, loved using it, took awhile to get good at timing on building a good loop to solo over, just like everything, takes practice, Now I have a Ditto 4X & a Beat Buddy, it's so much fun to lay down a drum track, then a rhythm part, then solo over both. I hear there's a few looper pedals on the market that are great to have, that's just what I have bought to increase my skill set.............It just take a-lot of hours of practice
It's Simple, but It's Complicated
