Back Home From the Road Trip: Bro Plays "Sleepwalk" on Steel Guitar

We returned home from Roseville (near Sacramento) today.

I have to go see Bro one of these days, SOON, play some music with him and our old friend Bob, who also lives in Fallon, Nevada.   Bro plays several instruments, including steel guitar.  Steel guitar is played with a bar, slid up and down the strings, and is popular in both Country and Western and Hawaiian music.  They were popular in times past and seem to be making a comeback.  I saw one on American Idol last week.

The song embedded below is "Sleepwalk," one of the most popular pop instrumentals of the 1950's.  (It was popular in 1959.)  My brother "Bro" plays it on his steel guitar and does justice to the original by Santo and Johnny.  Click on the arrow to play.



Here's a picture of Bro with his steel guitar.  He isn't as mean as he looks.  He's meaner.
