Hi Chris,
very nice playing and a nice little organ you have there. I think, your video-taping is very good, despite that the format is "squeezed" a bit at some places. But that doesn´t matter, for this there are very nice changes of camera angle and we can watch your technique perfectly. Bravo! I can´t judge your pedal technique, because I haven´t really learned it (I worked a bit with the organ-exercises by Ernst Kaller in former times). For me it looks quite well.
I thoroughly have enjoyed your performance!

Thanks Andreas.
I think my pedal technique, despite some years of lessons and a teacher nagging me about it, is basically still wrong. One is supposed to
keep the knees together and play with the insides of the feet, whereas I tens to sit spread-legged and often play with the outsides of the feet. I think I've improved a little but not enough. Anyway there are different schools of thought about it, and it seems to work for me somehow.
