I put together my own arrangement of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and thought it was worth sharing. I'm using standard C6th changes. I use pedals 5,6,7 and 8 with no knee levers. Here's the tabs and the same rhythm track which I played along with (I also posted the tabs below to archive them in the forum)...

*Below: Use left foot on pedal 5 and hold it down. Then press pedal 7 with the
right foot. Jimmy Day popularized using both feet to play the C6th tuning. I fold
up my LKR to avoid hitting it with my left knee while playing C6th.
