The Green Screen came in the mail today. Setup is almost ready to go now. Some lighting to fix and I need a stylist, but I'm ready. You all need Hammond lessons and you know it! ;-).

The organ you are hearing here is Logic's own "Vintage Organ". Sounds pretty good to me and has little to no latency. I thought I heared it in a @larrygoldings video (not sure ) and decided to give it a try, wow!..

It’s still a work in progress but this is sort of what my lessons in 2021 will look like.

I forgot to turn on note names, but they will be visible too.

If you’re looking for Hammond lessons, let me know and follow @hammondlessons or take a peek over at hammondlessons.com .

I teach the language of the (hammond) blues which is the foundation of all I play, whether it’s Funk, Soul, Jazz or Pop. I talk about timing, phrasing, melody, pulse, harmony, II-V-I progressions, scales , playing left hand bass, your fav organ players (and mine ) and a lot more Hammond related.

Now this was fun! What not to do when making a mistake while playing is to stop and say F*CK! Unless it's "F*CK, that was awesome!!" or wait until the teacher says "wow, great improv!"

I finally made the switch to Zoom, I worked with Skype since the beginning, with all its quicks and bad quality audio. I was a bit hesitant to use Zoom, but decided to take the plunge. It works amazingly well. Audio quality is better than Skype, and lots of possibilities. So, for those that are still in doubt, like I was, DO IT! :-). Stereo audio too and easier setup with my audio interface although that could be easier still I think.

A little snippet of information for y'all: The alleged Green Onions drawbar settings. I've seen Booker T himself use 888800000 as well on numerous occasions (in vids), so, I guess it depends a bit on the organ or the moment.

Little disclaimer: I may play this a little different than the master himself.

If you like this vid, leave me a like and/or a comment below and check our www.hammondlessons.com for more information.

The ONLY thing Corona has done for me is motivate me to start teaching and slowly but surely develop my own method for doing so. Online lessons are a lot of fun AND it gives me the opportunity the meet people from all over the world, even though it's 'online'. I'm not gonna thank bloody Corona, but it is something that I maybe would not have challenged myself to do if not for this whole darn crisis. At the momentI have students from Canada, the US, Germany, Spain, the UK and the Netherlands. Of course everybody is welcome so do you speak english and a passion for Hammond organ AND you're looking for lessons? Let me know!

A follow on @hammondlessons is appreciated!

I am still just messing around with screencompositions for my lessons, but while doing so I thought I might as well share some snippets of information for those interested. This is one of my most used ending chords when playing the (jazz)blues. In this case, in the key of G.

As I said yesterday I am messing around with screen layouts for my lessons. Sometimes this leads to pure ' magic ' with hands disappearing and such:). The drawbars work though! The progressions I sort of play here are Larry Goldings progressions by the way.

I've been messing with my #manycam screen composition to get a good combination of certain elements in my Skype / Zoom display for my students. When the organ you teach on doesn't look like a Hammond but you still want that look you have to get creative... I combined the overhead camera with some elements of @ikmultimedia 's B3X plugin. It sounds good, and this way my lessons look good too and it still shows real hands :)... Hey, I got plenty of time 'on my hands' anyway .. My hands disappear wheh I change drawbar settings, like magic, BUT the drawbars move anyway! How cool is that :)...

For those interested in getting some lessons: www.hammondlessons.com

Today I'm testing recording the big 'ole beast in the living room, without bothering the neighbours :). Recording on low volume. I think it works just fine, apart from instacompression. The b3 is moaning and groaning, so no problems there :), For those interested. Microphones used are 2 x Sennheiser e604 and an e602 going into an Universal Audio Apollo 8. Video is shot by my iPhone.
