  • Jimmy Smith boxed set wanted/pedals-left hand

    I'm looking for a boxed cd set: Jimmy Smith-The February 1957 Blue Note Sessions.

    While you're playing left hand bass on the lower manual, tap a short kick on the pedals, some organists tap along w/whatever they are playing in the left hand, but it is not necessary, just tap the pedal. To develop timing and rhythm, I start out w/the metronome at 60 or 120 and tap out 1/4 notes. If you're tapping 1 note, just tap the pedal that is right below your feet as you sit comfortably on the bench, usually is the b Natural.

    Also, transcribe Jimmy Smith's The Sermon, start w/the bass line. 1/2 way thru the guitar solo, he pedals a chromatic ascending A-B flat-B Natural-then he's back to tapping the pedals and playing it on the manual, that's a good place to start mixing it up.
