Like, say, that Brian Eno song "Sky Saw" I keep threatening you with songfic for.

Bonus music: Röyksopp playing "Electric Counterpoint" live. Live guitar looping is pretty cool, I think. Have loved it since Eno & Fripp did their "No Pussyfooting" thing. Here you can see how it lets the guitarist improvise atmospherically over himself while the rest of the band does its thing around that central guitar phrase.
