    Some fingerings work better than others. You should use the fingering that works best for you.

    You may find this series helpful for I have recorded the pedal tones to practice with.

    I use the recordings every day and find them very helpful.

    "Even though pedal tones have been with us for a long time, having been played by the great players throughout the ages. ... Many play pedal tones all wrong, in many cases. And frankly, if a player plays the pedal tones wrong, he had better not played them at all."
    Bill Knevitt

    Learn to do them the right way, it's not that difficult.
