I would really like to find a book that had plently of pedal excersizes in it. I would also like to find a classical organ book too. My local music stores don't have such a thing so any info would be awesome.

I don't know what you exactly mean by a classical organ book: repertoire or instructional? Assuming it is instructional, you should study Harold Gleason's "Method of Organ Playing" carefully (it is just wounderful). A great companion to the study would also be George Ritchie/George Stauffer's "Organ Technique: modern and early" (legato technique for 19th-century music and articulated technique for music composed before 1750). Both contain pedal exercises and can be ordered at www.amazon.com
Best wishes,

Dear DR LO,

Searching on net, I found something you might be interested in: "A System of Technical Studies in Pedal Playing for Organ", by Lars Nilson. It can be ordered at www.musicroom.com . The description at the site reads: "a classic tutor from 1904 still recommended by teachers and ideal for homing pedal technique". However, I don't know the book.
Good luck!
