(back) Subject: Re: Fred Astaire or twinkle toesys From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Sat, 18 Jan 2003 16:29:31 -0500   Greg:   Oliphant Chuckerbutty would not be pleased. He used heels on a second set of sharp keys installed on pedalboards where ever he played. He was a virtuoso right up there with George Thalbin Ball, Edwin H. Lemare, all from the UK I might add.   Do you use sequins and flashy diode lights on your shoes? The Brit flat pedalboards I've tried it wouldn't matter which part of the foot you used. They are so wide apart for each note that it's like getting your foot caught in a sidewalk grate. I guess that's why Willis came up with a version of a concave radiating clavier de pedale. The UK was also home to the reverse action for swell pedals. If you are doing the toe only nasty, why not the thumbless baroque fingerings to round things out. Toes work on Spanish, and neopolitan mushroom bass notes. Why not retrofit your present organ for those delightful things? One can never be too authentic. ROTFLMAO   Ron Severin

(back) Subject: old pedal-boards From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Sat, 18 Jan 2003 14:10:54 -0800   Those Spanish and Portuguese "mushroom" pedals are FASCINATING ... great wooden toadstools springing up from the floor (grin).   Do a Google search for "Cliquot" and you'll see that French baroque pedals weren't much "better" (though they served well enough for what they were INTENDED for: slow-moving chant melodies).   I've never played a Schnitger, but I've played a reasonable COPY of one (Fritts-Richards, All Souls' Episcopal Church Point Loma in San Diego), including the short (from front to back) flat pedal-board. I don't recall having any difficulty using my heels, but a very TALL friend of mine did ... but that was more a function of having to sit too far back so he wouldn't bang his knees on the bottom manual clavier (grin).   An interesting point about that (presumably) authentic stop-list: there were MULTIPLE 8' stops on EVERY manual, including the Brustwerk. The reeds worked well as solo or chorus; they were a LITTLE dark for French baroque music, but the spikey Sesquialtera made up for THAT (grin). The only 16' flue in the Pedal was a metal Principal, but it fit wondrous well under anything from an 8' flute to the plenum. The 16' Posaune was AMAZING ... dark, not very loud, but able to make itself felt, no matter what you had drawn.   If you get a chance to visit San Diego, that's a FINE organ to go see.   Cheers,   BUd

(back) Subject: Re: Fred Astaire From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sat, 18 Jan 2003 22:19:19 +0000 (GMT)   Hello,   Well, perhaps it is possible to all-toe the opening of the Bach D major, but where I use heels, I always SPECIFICALLY use "one-off" technique, tailor-made for a particular passage.   Opening of D major, for example.   L toe/Left heel/Right Toe/Left Toe/Left heel/Right toe/Left toe/Right toe.   So it is almost all toes, except on the E and the A.   I find that this is very secure on any type of action.   I have always said that in a toes only technique, the phrasing/articulation can be extremely precise, but it requires a lot more mental effort than romantic pedal technique.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK     (Bruce) Cremona502@cs.com wrote: >   > I relearned the D-major to include the all toes > method of the opening scale. > I was amazed!

I used to chat to the Bridge Captain and, he even allowed me to operate it once!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK         --- quilisma@socal.rr.com wrote: > Um, Colin, are you in the market for a BRIDGE?
