You right click an edge and select "select loop" to get the entire loop. How do you select just a partial loop?
So playing around with it, you can select one edge on one side of the loop you don't want, "cntrl" r click another edge on the opposing side of that edge you don't want, and hit "select partial loop", but make sure your cursor is on the outer point of that edge so that it selects the loop from that point to the other opposing edge. It will select the connecting loop between edges based off of which point on the second edge you have the cursor on.
Left click on one edge, and hold "cntrl" left click for each additional edge worked for me. Depends what you are trying to do with the selected elements. Disclaimer: I'm no expert on fast keys and selection methods, my .02$
You should be able to select the loop and use Christopher's idea but ctrl select the edges you don't want.
That didn't work for me? I couldn't figure out how to deselect an edge once the loop was selected, SW 2017.
It sounds like Christophers method would still require you to pick the edges one at a time. That's what I am trying to avoid.
I tried what Steve said and it did not work.
