Guest at the HQ #1 – Nicke Widén, pedal steel guitarist
This is the start of a series that I’ve been longing to do for a long time. To bring my friends to the HQ, play a few songs, have some freshly baked bread and have a nice talk about anything and everything.
First up is Nicke Widén, a pedal steel guitarist that I have been playing with for many years. Though, this is the first time we record something in a trio format. Ever wondered how a B3 and a pedal steel sounds together? Check it out!
There are four songs embedded in the show. Below you have the chapters to each segment.
Andreas Hellkvist – Hammond B3
Nicke Widén – pedal steel
Daniel Olsson – drums
