I just finished watching the Led Zeppelin Celebration Day reunion concert DVD. Holy frick! I never saw them live, and I understand so much more about the band and the music having seen the concert. John Bonham's son, Jason, was on drums and nailed it. But I digress from the topic at hand. I was amazed at the number of songs that JPJ did on keyboards. Especially with his feet (mostly left foot). I know it's done all the time, but it was an amazing performance, triggered samples or not. So, should the keyboard bass foot pedals be played with or without a shoe? I'm personally in favor of the cowboy boot. I have big feet, and the pointy toe helps me hone in on a specific pedal. I can see the advantages of playing barefoot, but you'd have to do all of your bass playing barefoot as well. JPJ - Fingers, Pick, Feet can't be beat!
