Discomfort in knee while pedaling

    One of the reasons I never took off with organ was the discomfort and irritation in my left knee while I pedaled 2nds, especially descending scale passages.

    It isn't painful, but I feel the urge stretch it out while practicing, or to have to get up and walk around if I push through it.

    Has anyone else dealt with this or something similar?
  • Raise the bench and practice pedaling with the ankle joint, knees relaxed, then see if it continues to be uncomfortable. Also introduce alternating toe technique (no heels) for scalar passages especially where performance practice dictates articulate playing.
