    Superb playing and lovely tones from that old Ovation. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks for that. Such a thoughtful and expressive song topped by technically superb solo.

    Thought the Ovation sounded horrible, but I love his playing as always.

    I grew up in Texas and always knew of Glen Campbell, but never gave him much consideration. When I was a kid, that was old people music, ha. A few years back I saw a clip of him absolutely shredding on a strat and it made my jaw drop. He was an incredible guitar player.

    Glen was a real talent. I was surprised when I learned he was one of the first-tier west coast studio musicians in the '60s.

    Well, the Ovations were one of the first commercially successful acoustic-electrics. I never liked them much.

    Glen could PLAY! also bass and sing - even on tour w/ Beach Boys

    One of the other guitarists said something to the effect that if Glen could sight-read, they'd all be out of a job.

    Glen is one of my heros.

    Re: David's quote above.

    When I was 10 I asked my teacher. (Howard Roberts) what he thought of Glen. He said " If he could sight read, I'd be out of a job. He's that good." :)

    Great stuff indeed. He was a member of the Wrecking Crew, superb studio musicians who played on countless country and rock and roll hits.

    I agree that I don’t love the tone of Ovation guitars, but Glenn sounds pretty freaking good to me :)

    I think he’s the only one I’ve seen pull off the Ovations where I don’t cringe.

    FWIW...back in the day the first call players weren't called the Wrecking Crew. It's something Blaine came up with long after their heyday. :)

    Jim Croce.
    Mac Davis.
    Nancy Wilson.
    And that's just off the top of my head.

    I've got an 83 Custom Balladeer that is a wonderful sounding guitar...when I play it. ;)

    It ain't the car....it's the driver.

    The solo that starts at 2:13 is just ridiculous and the strat action towards the end is pretty sweet as well.
