What a player, musician, and entertainer.
Thanks for the reminder.
Glen could play whatever he wanted to play, he'd do that on an acoustic too, the guy was off the chain, actually he was on a big fat chain call ' country', he would have made a hell of a metal player.
He was an in demand session player before, during, and after his solo hits. Takes a lot of talent to be that. He has been one of my favorites since I was a kid, like him more than Johnny Cash actually.
One of my all time favorites.
His duets with Roy Clark are legendary.
He is one of the reasons I learned to play guitar. (somewhat poorly)
Great Share, Thanks!
What a great song writer .
Roy Clark, now there was a man who could shed anything.
He was a real deal musician, a genuine triple threat. Singer, songwriter, player. Plus, he had an instantly recognizable style of his own. Once you heard a few Glen Campbell songs, you could identify any other with no introduction needed. THAT, to me, is what distinguishes the greatest musicians from the herd.
God Father of METAL
sure Glen could jam.
Actually Glen Campbell played guitar on many hit songs, not just his own songs.
He was quite an accomplished musician.
"It was the early 1960s and his impressive guitar skills earned him a place in the Wrecking Crew, a collection of LA session musicians who played on hundreds of recordings for the era’s biggest names – Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Phil Spector, Sam Cooke, Dean Martin, Simon and Garfunkel, Jan and Dean, the Beach Boys, and many others.
His guitar touched the landmark recordings of his time. That’s his rhythm line on Sinatra’s Strangers in the Night, his comeback hit from 1966; he played bubblegum riffs for the Monkees; his guitar rings out on Viva Las Vegas by Presley and, alongside his voice, on the Beach Boys’ landmark album Pet Sounds. His association with Brian Wilson was particularly fortuitous. The Beach Boys auteur co-wrote Guess I’m Dumb, Campbell’s first single..."
My fav duets including him were with that other gifted player Jerry Reed.
This is some funky singing and playing
Jerry was another fantastic songwriter, two naturals.
These country dudes generally don't do the whole wank-fest jam off's when doing duets.
See how one guitar is fat and tight, he's playing right under the singing almost the whole time, and the other guitar sounds completely different tonally, but it's all still very tightly controlled stuff, these guys look loose, but this is all arranged carefully. They would have had a discussion about what guitars they were gonna use to get the effect, I love how country singers do the harmony thing like that
Jerry Reed was a flat out MONSTER player. He was shredding before shredding was even a thing.
Love that song. They rocked it.
Yep , both those guys could play ... FOR REAL !!!!
Sadly we've lost them both now ...
The story he tells about his Sinatra session is something else.
Chris Isaak interview.
Years ago, I heard the ring and tone of his Ovation guitar.
It is what got me hooked on them, the volume, the tone and the stability of those guitars.
Not a real big fan of the active pickups, but they are awesome guitars.
I have one left and I will never get rid of it.
