Left hand confusion???????
« on: April 19, 2006, 08:55:59 PM »
Man I thought I was doing something with my little tritones

then I thiought I was the Man with my left hand fournote voicings

But I was shedding with Jerome Taylor yesterday

and the man does things with two little notes in his left hand that sounds oh so heavenly

I was working on it today and it is amazing how the placement of two notes and sometimes three notes in the left hand can produce such sureal textures

The organ is a very complex and multi faceted instrument no wonder its so hard to get people to post theory on the organ

his approach seems to be one of using the left hand to complement and suppport the right

To be or not to be that is the question you anwer when you pray practice and read your word

Yes Diverse. I play alot using this fingering. Playing alot of thirds and fourths with my left hand with only two fingers, this sets me up to play fuller chords like the major 7ths, 9ths,11ths and most assured the 13ths.  Bishop Cole
