I'm gonna leave this right here...
Great tune and a great player.
Superb playing and lovely tones from that old Ovation. Thanks for posting.
Lotta big names on that stage ..
Thanks for that. Such a thoughtful and expressive song topped by technically superb solo.
I've been trying to find a clip of Roy Rogers playing on that same program and just to see what he does...no luck....YET!!!
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.
sequence of words...
sequence of emotions...
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."
In the immortal words of Mr. Merle Haggard: 'It's not right for one body to have so much talent!'
That may well have been the origin of the remark I referred to.
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.
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.
On a Teisco no less.
