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.

I had 2 new students today, one of which is trumpet player Chris Brown who has a fascination for the Hammond. I love teaching and sharing a passion with people. So, if you know someone or are someone that wants to know more about playing the Hammond, let me know!

Check out Chris on trumpet playing on @salsgreenhouse latest album "Bloom"!

Met dank aan onze premier en consorten. Huichelaars. Ik blijf nog wel een paar maanden braaf thuis zitten hoor, en velen met mij.

Posting some fragments of an old video of mine about drawbar settings. Here's a basic jazz sound, for me also known as the "Larry Young" sound.

Nice to see my lessons have the desired effect ! That effect being to spread some Hammond love. It's contagious, and in this case that's a good thing! #hammondlessons #hammondorgan ...

New student from the UK today! It's very rewarding to be able to teach in these strange Corona times and enjoy the music, the instrument and share the passion, and hopefully light up some Hammondfire with my students. #hammondlessons #hammondxk5 #hammondorgan #hammondtutorial #ikmultimedia #hammondb3x #ipadhammond

Do YOU want lessons too? Do you know someone that does? Check out www.hammondlessons.com for more information!

Testing out other "Virtual Camera" software after a pretty serious computer freeze yesterday while using #manycam, probably due to overheating. (disclaimer: my computer could be the problem, not manycam, not sure) So far Ecamm Live (trial) seems to work fine, multiple cameras, audio routed correctly with Loopback and the possibility to add a skype call to your stream/virtual cam in skype. So far so good. Nerd post obviously, but maybe interesting for other people looking for ways to stream or teach lessons via Skype (Zoom doesn't handle virtual cams correctly since the latest version). Anyway... Bye 🙂 #hammondlessons #onlinehammondlessons #hammondxk5 #hammondorgan #ecammlive #panasonicg7 #lumixg7 ...

The blues has always been and will always be a big part of the roots of my playing style, whether I play soul, funk, pop or jazz. When people come to me for lessons they want to know more about my style of playing, so I mostly teach (about) the blues. I ( @frank_montis ) decided to write down some exercises for Hammond organ, specifically in combination with a left hand bass, so students can get familiar with the language of (jazz)blues and learn some left hand bass in the process. More to come and work in progress! Are you interested in learning? Let me know! Everybody is welcome. Check out www.hammondlessons.com for more information.
