    Why is John Patton's approach to the Hammond organ so cool? Because his basslines are deceptively tricky and full of funky syncopation. organissimo's Jim Alfredson explains.

    Fred Hammond bassline - Let The Praise Begin

    4:52

    Some funky gospel tune this is! Fred Hammond is laying down a nice fat groove. This man can sing, write, produce songs and play the bass so good. I like the way he plays the chords and little melodies in between without getting in the way of the song.

    The Chicken on Hammond M100 Organ

    5:04

    Moot Booxle plays (kinda sloppily but with soul) the classic James Brown jazz-funk jam The Chicken on a vintage Hammond M100 organ. This particular cabinet style is the M111. Running through my own DIY line out box into a Strymon Lex Leslie simulator, speed controlled with my cheapo DIY switch.
    Bass line was played on Logic EVB3 to get closer to the real B3 bass tone, since the lower manual of spinet model Hammonds does not go that low.
    Also played Gretsch/Rogers drum kit.
    Recorded in Logic Pro 9, produced, mixed, mastered, and all that stuff by Moot Booxle.

    The Chicken was written by Alfred Pee Wee Ellis.

    Very Hot Stuff - Barbara Dennerlein on Hammond B3 Organ

    5:06

    Seeing is believing. It looks impossible, but it's true, Barbara Dennerlein plays bass lines with her left foot that I couldn't play with my left hand.

    Unlike many organists, she did not begin with piano. When she was 11 years old she began playing organ, including the use of the foot pedals. She took lessons for a year and a half from a teacher who played jazz himself. By the time she was 13 she was completely on her own in regard to her musical development.

    Charlie Parker was her musical hero and biggest influence. While she respects Jimmy Smith's musicianship and his enormous contribution to jazz organ, she did not model her playing, sound, technique or musical approach after his.

    Like Jimmy, she developed her own personal style and unmistakable sound. Her artistic sensibilities are closer to Larry Young than Jimmy Smith, but they are still very much her own.

    In the 80's Jimmy Smith briefly moved from Hammond B3 to another make of organ, experimented with synthesizers and even played electric piano. In the 80's Barbara also began to experiment, but she took a different approach.

    She integrated midi technology into her B3 keyboard and sampled an upright bass to give her bass pedals a more realistic sound.

    This video is one small glimpse into her musical world, I hope you'll view the other clips on my channel, and enjoy clips by other great B3 players. My hope is that music is enjoyed as a celebration, and not a competition - it's art not sport.

    Barbara Dennerlein, Hammond B3 Organ. Dennis Chambers, Drums. (Not shown on clip: Andy Sheppard, Sax, Mitch Watkins, Guitar.) Vienna, 1992

    Riff Stapler Blues - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Organ Clone Clavia

    3:15

    Here is my composition Riff Stapler Blues. I've written down a few notes regarding the composition of this uptempo jazz blues.

    Intro: An eight bar walking bass line with grace notes and a rhythm of percussive right hand 'thumps' on the lower manual.

    Chorus 1 and 2: The four bar main riff, the base, that got me started building up the song. The same four bar phrase is repeated over the tonic, subdominant and dominant, except during the fast short 'machine gun' tremolo at the end of the chorus.

    Chorus 3: Melody line chorus with a 'Chuck Berry'-rhythm at the end.

    Chorus 4: Jimmy McGriff-inspired four bar phrase repeated three times.

    Chorus 5: Chord triplet rhythm using the Hammond organ trick of 'sliding' the same chord from the upper to the lower manual. This accentuate the key click sound and the different sounds of the manuals. The lower manual has not the Hammond B-3 Percussion effect. The chorus ends with a C7+9 chord for tension.

    Chorus 6: Starts with an emergency services vehicle siren sound :-) I'm holding the C sharp as a pedal tone to avoid activating the Percussion effect.
    A blues riff in the middle, and ends with quarter note triplets and eight notes triplets.

    Chorus 7: Palm glisssando upwards and an eight notes triplet phrase downwards. 'Palm staccato glissando' quarter note triplets upwards.

    Chorus 8: Start with two bars of eight note triplets, and then I play 5/4 against 4/4 for two bars. Next four bars are a short palm glissando followed by a characteristic Hammond two-note tremolo. The last four bars in the chorus is a figure using anticipation, as the whole pedal tone phrase goes in the dominant (C chord). Ends with a long palm glissando downwards.

    Chorus 9 and 10: Same as chorus 1 and 2.

    Ending: Palm glissando downwards and upwards, eight note triplets, palm glissando downwards and upwards, and the song ends with a F7+9 slided down to an inverted F5 on the lower manual.

    I'm using lower keyboard percussive thumps throughout the song.

    Why the name 'Riff Stapler Blues'? Well, I got this thought when composing the song, that I used a stapler tacking together a few riffs :-)

    Pink Floyd Time Bass Cover

    7:10

    Time is the fourth track from English progressive rock band Pink Floyd's 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon, and the only song on the album credited to all four members of the band. This song is about how time can slip by, but many people do not realize it until it is too late. Roger Waters got the idea when he realized he was no longer preparing for anything in life, but was right in the middle of it. He had just turned 28. It is noted for its long introductory passage of clocks chiming and alarms ringing, recorded as a quadrophonic test by Alan Parsons, not specifically for the album.

    Each clock at the beginning of the song was recorded separately in an antiques store. This is followed by a two-minute passage dominated by Nick Mason's drum solo, with rototoms and backgrounded by a tocking sound created by Roger Waters picking two muted strings on his bass. With David Gilmour singing lead on the verses and with Richard Wright singing lead on the bridges and with female singers and Gilmour providing backup vocals, the song's lyrics deal with Roger Waters' realization that life was not about preparing yourself for what happens next, but about grabbing control of your own destiny.

    Green Onions - Organ Cover - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Clone Clavia

    2:57

    This is my cover version of Green Onions. The 'trademark' chorded chorus and it's bass line comes from an interview I saw with Booker T. in Keyboard Magazine. The solo is a copycat version of Booker T's solo from the 1962 original recording. I have tried to capture in detail all ornaments/fast notes/grace notes that Booker T plays during his four chorus long solo. He plays them deliberately and frequently, and they are very important for the song.

    The left hand bass line I'm playing during the solo is picked from Lewie Steinberg's bass line from the original '62 recording.

    I'm playing at around the same tempo as in the original recording.

    I have also uploaded tutorial videos covering the chords and left hand bass lines I'm using for this version.

    Green Onions is composed and first recorded by Booker T. and The MG's in 1962.

    Moanin - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Organ Clone Clavia

    5:01

    Here is my arrangement of Moanin'. Moanin' was originally recorded by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers in 1958.
    Chorus 1: The melody. The song is built on this format:
    A (8 bars)
    A (8 bars)
    B (8 bars)
    A (8 bars)


    Chorus 2: Solo.
    A - Emphasize the 6th. One non-tonal slide from the upper to the lower manual, a number of grace notes, a few keyboard 'thumps' on the lower manual.

    A - Solo one octave lower, a few thumps on the lower manual. A number of grace notes. This part ends with a 'machine gun' tremolo.

    B - Upwards palm glissando. Two-note tremolo. Down and upwards palm glissando. Pedal tone with the thumb under a chorded figure. Then a chorded triplet riff. A one octave thumb upwards thumb glissando followed by a pedal tone phrase, another short upwards thumb glissando and yet another pedal tone phrase.

    A - Four downwards thumb glissandos in a row. A few solo phrases. This part ends with a small pedal tone figure.


    Chorus 3: Solo.
    A - Higher and higher up on the keyboard until the highest C note. On my way up I use my right wrist to play two keyboard 'thumps' on the lower manual while I'm holding notes on the upper manual. A short downwards triplet staccato palm glissando. Four upwards index finger glissandos in a row.

    A - A triplet phrase upwards. Working my way up to the highest C again. I'm using one wrist keyboard thump on the lower manual (while holding a note on the upper manual) this time. Three downwards thumb glissandos. Then a 'machine gun' tremolo phrase.

    B - A few solo phrases, then a chorded pedal tone phrase (the little finger is holding the pedal tone). A small block chord, and then ending this part with a blues phrase.

    A - Pedal tone phrases all the time, except for one down and upwards palm glissando.


    The bass line during my two solo choruses is in this format:
    Solo chorus 1
    A - Two-times-on-the-same-note bass line
    A - Two-times-on-the-same-note bass line
    B - Quarter note walking bass line
    A - Two-times-on-the-same-note bass line

    Solo chorus 2
    A - Quarter note walking bass line
    A - Quarter note walking bass line
    B - Two-times-on-the-same-note bass line
    A - Quarter note walking bass line


    Chorus 4: The melody (AABA).

    Then the B part is repeated one more time.


    Ending: I play the main riff two times, then slowing it down in the lower register of the upper manual. A palm staccato glissando is followed by a long B9add6/F chord.

    I play a few left hand phrases and end with a downwards left thumb glissando to the lowest F.

    Then I play a F5 chord with my right hand while changing the speed of the Leslie simulator from Stop position to Fast, with the half-moon switch. When the Leslie sim is up to speed I switch back to the Stop position. When the Leslie sim is close to a stop I switch back to Fast position and play the lowest F on both manuals.

    GREEN ONIONS. SOLO HAMMOND XK3c/LESLIE 3300 COVER.

    4:18

    Rather than playing the single note bass line as my left hand accompaniment during the verses,I came up with the idea of playing the main riff chords/part with my left hand,whilst playing the main organ lead with my right hand.
    Ive never seen anyone do it this way before.
    This is much,much harder than just playing the single bass notes with your left hand.
    I hope it will be of interest.
    Enjoy!!
    PS. I will be making a video of me playing this version along with my own backing track,very soon.
    (Reminder to self,I had the little gorillapod taped to the windowledge to get this great angle).

    Venus Rolling Rock - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Organ Clone Clavia

    2:29

    Here is my composition Venus Rolling Rock. The theme and the bass line are in minor, but every time I go from F minor to Bb minor, or to C minor, I throw in a short major scale note with the right hand (I slide down from G# to A) to create a little bit of tension in the minor mood :-)

    I'm using both manuals for short percussive keyboard 'thumps'.

    I'm using long pedal notes when playing the lower manual and the reason is that the organ registration I choose to go with the block chords sounds a bit thin for single note soloing. So I use those pedal tones to beef up the sound a bit. For variation I choose to play one chorus with the pedal tone lower than the soloing, and the next chorus with the pedal tone higher than the solo.

    Walking In The Old School - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Organ Clone Clavia

    3:17

    Here is my uptempo composition 'Walking In The Old School'. This song started out as a left hand minor mood walking bass line that I used as a backdrop for right hand improvisation. After some time a melody chorus started to grow, followed by a few other ideas and choruses.

    ----------
    Intro: Short walking bass intro with percussive keyboard 'thumps'.

    Chorus 1: The melody. I begin every phrase with a grace note.
    Chorus 2: The melody higher up, with some embellishments.

    Chorus 3: A single note blue chorus that begins with downward staccato palm glissando triplets.

    Chorus 4: The main idea here is to create a bit of harmonic tension and a mood not that much minor oriented. Starts with anticipation using F. Also sliding the same notes from the upper to the lower manual. Using the interval 5: A to E to B.

    Chorus 5: Walking In The Old School.

    Chorus 6: A rhythm chorus, using small block chords.

    Chorus 7: A repeated riff throughout the chorus.
    Chorus 8: Same riff as in the chorus before, but here I'm using a pedal tone as a part of the riff.

    Chorus 9: Palm glissando and two-note tremolo, pedal tone, palm glissando down and up. The chorus ends with a long 'machine gun' tremolo.

    Chorus 10: The melody, with small embellishments.

    Ending: Repeating parts of the melody with variations, and a pedal tone. Downward staccato palm glissando triplets.
    A phrase from the melody, played on both manuals, ending with a Cm6/G. I octave the bass on the lower manual.

    Smoke On The Water - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Organ Clone Clavia

    4:40

    Here is my arrangement of Deep Purple's 'Smoke On The Water'. The purpose of this video is to demo the C1 with the distortion (called Drive on the C1) turned to a maximum. I also wanted to give a not too difficult arrangement for playing this song on keyboard, with a (simplified) left hand bass line. The organ is a Clavia Nord C1 - a Hammond B-3 clonewheel organ.
    Nord C1 Registrations and Settings:
    Upper 88 8000 000. No Chorus. No Percussion.
    Lower 00 0000 000. Not used.
    Bass lower man. 60.
    Leslie in Stop position.
    Equalizer Treble 0dB, Mid -5dB, Bass 0dB.
    Overdrive turned to maximum.
    Reverb Hall, Soft, 50%.
    Tonewheel mode Vintage 2 (high level of tonewheel crosstalk and cable leakage artefacts).
    The sound is recorded line out from the organ. No additional external effects, external amplifiers or speakers are used.

    High Walker Blues - Nord C1 Hammond B-3 Organ Clone Clavia

    3:32

    Here is my composition 'High Walker Blues'. I had two main ideas behind this song and they are both about the walking bass line.
    First, I wanted to use a bass line where every note is played two times, like F, F, Eb, Eb, D, D, and so forth.
    My other main idea was to do some walking up high on the lower manual. At one point in the song I'm walking downwards almost three octaves.

    Intro: I start with a keyboard 'thump' rhythm and then add a walking bass line.

    Chorus 1: The first theme. I'm adding add a few keyboard thumps on the lower manual for the rhythm.

    Chorus 2: The same theme, but this time I do the 'every note is played two times' for the walking bass line.

    Chorus 3: The second theme. The same walking bass line as in the chorus before. I did try to create a second theme that is not that much 'bluesy' in comparison with the rest of the song.

    Chorus 4: Here I'm picking up regarding intensity for the solo, while at the same time starting walking the bass line higher up. I start with a thumb glissando upwards, followed by a fast one note tremolo ('machine gun' tremolo). During the sub-dominant (Bb chord) I go up to the highest C note at the keyboard with the bass line also reaching it's highest note, Bb. From here and for the rest of the chorus the bass line just keeps on going down and down to the lowest key of the keyboard. The right hand ends the chorus with a short pedal tone phrase.

    Chorus 5: The solo starts with a two-note tremolo. When I go the half-step way up to Bb I'm starting with a F6 chord played in unison with the bass line. I'm resting a short while with a Bb9/Ab chord. Then it goes all the way up to the highest note of the keyboard again, again with the bass walking high up. The chorus ends with a two bar eight notes triplet phrase.

    Then I start 'rewinding' the song :-)

    Chorus 6: Same as Chorus 3.

    Chorus 7: Same as Chorus 2.

    Chorus 8: Same as Chorus 1.

    Ending: I'm holding the F6/Eb chord while doing an one octave downwards thumb glissando with the left hand. When the left hand comes to the low F I'm holding it, and switch the half-moon switch for the Leslie rotary speaker simulator from Stop to Fast.

    When the rotation has begun I'm sliding down my right hand from the upper to the lower manual (with care taken to hit a few additional random notes during the slide), and immediately continuing with a chorded triplet phrase followed by a, well, let me call it a 'chord glissando', up to the last F6/E chord. I'm curling my fingers to have the 'chord glissando' going smoothly. The song ends by punching in the F on both the upper and lower manual.
