Hey everyone - Yeah, the loops can be really confusing at first, but once it clicks for you they're super helpful.
One thing first though - if either of your hands isn't quite up to tempo yet it's just going to be frustrating, and you may end up thinking your compas isn't good when it's really more of a technical thing. I recommend waiting until you feel pretty good about playing stuff at a given tempo (in both hands!) before trying to play with compas.
That said, you really want to hear the compas in the loops before trying to play along. if you don't yet - and it definitely can take a minute - I recommend just listening to the loops without playing at all. And don't always try to count and understand, either. Passive listening can be really helpful. Think of all the hit songs you hate but have memorize simply because they were on the radio all the time. If you just have compas playing while you cook or shop online for guitars you're not going to buy or whatever it'll start to work its way into you. As I always point out - it's not actually in the blood of the Spaniards or the Gypsies. They've just heard it a lot more.
Anyway, once you feel like you get it, you might try to just hum or sing the compas along with the loops to make sure you feel it. At that point if it all makes sense then dive in with the guitar and see if you can recreate what you were just singing. That way you'll know what you're trying to feel when you play along. In time the Loops become a really helpful study aid rather than a source of frustration, I promise!
Hope this helps, and keep me posted with your progress!
