Frank Parish and David Spires do this with both knees to get Paul Franklin's Pedal #4 sound with knee levers.Would it work this way with just one knee (LKR & LKV) on an U12?


LKR LKV
1 F# + G#
2 D# + E
3 G#
4 E
5 B - Bb/A (with half stop)
6 G# - F#

Thanks;JS.

Tommy White has his changes split like yours, so I would guess it would work fine.

I did it like this:


The LKL (front) gives the upper octave (strings 5&6) and RKL (back) gives the lower (strings 9&10). Obviously, this is a U-12 setup. I seem to recall that Joe Wright does this all on one pedal (lever???)

The PF knee lever is on the LKR (back).

FWIW

So to get the G# and B notes to drop a whole step at the same time.....you engage the LKR and LKV at the same time???
That seems to be fairly difficult to move your knee sideways and up at the same time don't it??
Just wondering the physical movement there; and can it be done....I tried it once before on my old steel I had will lots of knees and found "that particular move" to be a "NO GO".

Im useless but I find the LKL/LKV and LKR/LKV to be very useable. My LKV drops the Bs a full tone....I can even half pedal the vertical with LKL or LKR. Im still trying to get my tongue not to stick out of the side of my mouth while I do it.
