    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    doubbling notes in the bass

    1:52

    Sometimes you may gain time by just playing the same note twice in the bass line. Being a bassplayier i quite often will do this playing the bass. So it works on organ bass to. You can kick in a a grace not by using a note a half step below. Having looked at at couple of Joe D vids I notice that he moves his left hand very little. He conserves the movement to the right hand. The left hand bass is mostly done within an octave (but the foldback makes it sound as if you are shifting octaves all the time). He also uses root fift and double plays notes from time to time to fill up the bass lines.

    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.

    Akai Rhythm Wolf with Peter Gunn-style walking bass line

    2:31

    This is an experiment in tweaking the bass synth settings on an Akai Rhythm Wolf drum machine. The output is going through a reverb pedal then through the tube amp on my Hammond E-111 organ. Some of the background noise picked up by my cell phone camera is from the organ's tone wheel motor.

    The pattern I programmed was inspired by the Emerson Lake and Palmer cover version of the Peter Gunn TV series theme by Henry Mancini, but it is not meant to be an exact reproduction of that composition, and obviously, doesn't include the melody.
