One guitar has it on rkr another guitar has it on lkr. I am more used to rkr any thoughts? What do you like/recommend? Greg

I lower LKL and raise LKR.

RKL

On the Legrande it was previously on RKR and the 3rd string lower was on RKL, but on the P Pull it's on RKL and the 3rd string lower is on RKR.

Guess which one was easiest to change to make them the same ! Question Rolling Eyes

One day I may change them both to RKR 4th string raise and RKL for the 3rd string lower, but not today...

I've had it LKV,LKR,RKR and currently LKL. I believe it doesn't make any difference, but it should be opposite leg and direction from C-C#, so you can use both raises with 5+6 pedals instead of switching to the 7th pedal for the 4 chord!

Well, there's a position I never thought of! Whoa! Cool

Thanks for all the feedback!

Jim, with the LKR are you playing C6 with both feet regularly? and do you have any changes on the RKR for C6?

Greg,
I do not play with both feet although I have often thought about working on that technique. On my RKR, I raise my Cs a half step.

Jim, have you departed from the "standard" pedal arrangement (5 through 8), or do you not use the "5 & 7" combination?

Brint, my floor pedals are totally standard, including the original P4 (raises 4 & 8 from A to B). As for using 5&7 together, I don't do that much. Instead, I'll lower my 3rd string a half step and reach out to grab the 1st string. Those will give me the same notes as P7 would, without having to use 2 feet and worry that I'm gonna whomp my volume pedal accidentally when I put my foot back on it. (Of course, I can't milk the 3rd and 4th string raises a whole step using this method, but my style doesn't require that.)

In the past, I normally had it on LKR, sometime as a half stop, also raising to B. I've also had it on LKR just going to Bb. On my current C6 tuning, I have it on LKV.

I've got an unusual set up for that raise. I have it on LKL, but with a half-step notch that goes to B natural. The half-raise was tricky to get used to but Bill (Rudolph at Williams) gave it a pretty solid feel bump. I used to have just the A to Bb raise on RKR but that lever was pulling so much stuff (on my other guitars) it was hard to use. Since I have the John Hughey lowers on both inward knees (G to F on LKR and E to D on RKL) I was running out of places to put the A to Bb. So far so good on the double raise on LKL.
