    When doing pedal tones my fingerings are only good to about low F# (123) but it seems like I can play lower with the limitation being not knowing the fingerings of any of the lower notes. The questions are what are the fingerings (if any) of the lower tones and is it vaulable for me to extend that lower range?

    You can use 123 for all of them, if not, use the same fingerings that you would in the lower register. IMHO the bridging notes (Low F to Low C#) are much harder than the next set of pedal notes.
