Hey y'all,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3pkqDsTDVk

This is my first YouTube pedal steel instrumental video in quite a long time. I recorded this one last year with my dad. At the time I was just coming back from R.S.I injuries in both hands which were hindering my playing. I loved recording this one but due to video editing corruption combined with confidence issues regarding my playing I never released it.

Recently, a few people have been sending me messages asking when my next video will be and I never really had an answer.
However, after finding this video a few weeks ago, I realized it was much better than I remembered so I thought I'd get it out there with a re edit. I have improved since then but this is a special video to me as I'm alongside my dad playing one of the instrumentals he rocked at many British Country Festivals, in his heyday.

In this video, my dad went back to his 1970s lap steel roots playing it more of the Don Helms/Jerry Byrd way, whilst I played it the more modern way which my dad used to do when I was a kid.

Hope you enjoy and a big thanks goes to my sponsors Ezzee-Slide Tone Bars and Perfect Touch Finger Picks!

Many thanks

Steven Hicken Jr.

Very nice sir. It is so rare to see a father and son play steel and that makes this video even better.

Steven, nice job with your dad. You were dressed in some fine cloth and looking sharp.

Thanks Larry, I'm a better dresser than steel player! Very Happy

Thanks Paul!
I'm lucky to have him because without him, I wouldn't be here with you guys or a lover of country music.

Happy new year y'all!
