[sdiy] diy stomp pedal question

Thanks for all the replies. I had a simple SPDT stomp swith in the drawer
and with some finagling of connections made it work. I am now sadly out of
those types of switches and really like the simple connection on/off type
wiring plan.

So new question: using a 6 pin DPDT stomp switch like this one
(https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/11151) or the more common 9 pin
how would I wire these to do simple SPDT work (ie: two options in, one or
the other out via the switch open/close).

I know I'd short a few pins to each other but damn if it wasn't obviously
to be which ones. Rather than keep guessing I figured i'd ask the masters

Thanks again for any/all ideas or help.
