If I keep the 4th string raised a half-tone with a knee-lever.
I found out I had a half-stop on the 5th string using the C-pedal.
(The pedal that raise both 4th &5th string a full tone)

Using the full C-pedal with 4th string lowered also worked fine.


A little blue-shuffle example going from E to A

3----------8---------8-------8-----------
4----8C~8R----8R-------------------------(don't release knee-raise)
5----------------------8~~8c-------------(half-C-pedal)
6-------------------------------8~~~~~~--

Over 17 years after this post, I just sat down at 3am and found out that this 1/2 stop exists. Thank you!
