Donny,

Up here in the frigid north we wear insulated boots to gigs year round. That does make it a little hard to kick bass though. smile

Hahahah Tom...I just don't need them when I'm performing with this setup just more wires and clutter....of course I have used pedals in the past on my Organs & Pianos, and many times when I record songs too in the studio for certain parts, Vocal Harmony triggers etc.....I prefer to do most of what I need with my fingers which is comfortable for me. In fact I was dancing the Hustle with my beautiful wife last week at one of my Ballroom Dance clubs...so I don't think I have two Rt feet at all cool ...learned how to dance long ago playing NYC Clubs & Discos.

take care

Donny,

Pat and I took ballroom dancing lessons and had a ball. The problem was that I played every weekend and Pat had to stay home with our kids who were little at the time. The saying is true, if you don't use it you lose it. We lost it. When playing with an arranger of course I let the arranger play the bass. It does a much better job than I could. With my band I play all the bass on my pk-5s. If you saw that Alan McPike video, my left foot is about equal to his. I actually like kicking bass even though it is something else to haul and setup. In fact when not using music if my foot goes to the right pedals my hands will be correct also. You take care also my friend.

Tom

Donny, we will sign up for dance lessons again just for the occasion. You need to get to the Lake Michigan shore sometime. As Tom Bodet says "we'll keep the light on for you".
