      After releasing the E key Matthew Fisher goes next to the C key,then B key, then G key and slides his finger off the black key onto the A key. This is at 7:20 in the video. Does anyone else do the same? I've seen some use the C key, then the G key, then the F key and then slide off the black key onto the A key. You can see what he does clearly in this video:

      Yes, this an old thread, but I didn't want to start a new one.

      Here is a wonderful arrangement played back in 2006 by organ and piano teacher Rein de Jong:


      Hammond M-102 #21000.
      Leslie 147 #F7453.
      Hammond S-6 #72421

        Thank you for the Procol Harem music transcription. I like it , I've played the tune by ear for years but was missing some of the sweet parts, like the third stanza, the organ plays a counter-point melody to the vocal line, love-it.

          There's a super biopic called Gainsbourg - the Je T'aime section is very funny.
          So, last week, I'm on Spotify, looking for music that's Hammond organ centric.
          I stumbled on this list..."Hammond organ orgy"...and, in this playlist, I found some interesting stuff.

          "Je t'aime moi non plus" was in this songlist.

          I'm not much for listening to my porn while driving, though I typically would prefer to be in the mood before it started. Totally caught me off guard. Good thing I was listening to it with the AirPods, and not in the car's speakers, with them blaring it out at a stoplight while I wait for the light to change. 🤣🤣🤣
