Have you always wondered about Hammond organ drawbar settings? Have you ever wished to get the drawbar settings of your favorite professional musician? Have you tried to memorize the settings of performing organists?
           The reality is that an imitation is not exactly what you need. You need to know how to create your own unique custom drawbar settings.
                   1st you must realize that even if you use the exact drawbar compilation of a particular organist, it will not necessarily sound that way when you play. This may seem to be a shock, but you must reckon that there are many variables that determine the sound of an organ. These variables include but are not limited to the following list of variables:

  • Exact chord
  • Exact chord inversions
  • Exact organ & Leslie Speaker specifications (condition, age, restoration process etc…)
  • Church, arena, club, or theater building acoustics (room size & humidity, crowd size & behavior etc…)
Of course there are many more factors. I just named a few so that you may feel what I’m saying.

                   This DVD video teaches the fundamentals you need to know pertaining to drawbars.  This DVD video lesson empowers you to float through an entire gig without being distressed about drawbar settings. You will learn to change drawbar settings on the fly during any song. You will learn to change drawbar settings according to the environment that you are ministering to.

                  Stop trying to remember specific drawbar settings! It is a waste of time. The concept of drawbar settings is not as challenging as it may seem. In fact, it is just a matter of grasping the concept. Master organist Doug Collins (founder of EasyMusicTraining.com) simplifies this so-called mystery of drawbar settings.
