I liked all his pop and country songs, but really never knew he could play like this until years later:

He was a first-call Nashville studio player, a lofty status by itself. And as far as I'm aware he didn't read conventional music notation.

And years before that, he was a first-call Los Angeles studio player.

Thanks for sharing. His voice was the perfect complement to my favorite songwriter, Jimmy Webb: Galvaston, By The Time I Get To Phoenix, Wichita Lineman, and many others.

Wow! Phenomenal band (that trombonist on the last chorus was outstanding!), fantastic arrangement, rock solid trumpet section, and he really made the changes!

Speaking of the changes, I really like those changes . . . a little different from the usual way boppers play them.

Thanks, Mark, and yes, Glen Campbell was a big part of my youth. Remember his TV show with him and Johnny Hartford? Great stuff, seriously!

Another era ends, but tons of contributions so that we'll never forget him.

A true virtuoso on his instrument.
And a lesson we should all learn-- let's not be too quick to dismiss the popular successful musicians. Sometimes folks just have to "dumb down" their art to make a good comfortable living.

Glen Campbell was a monster - a serious studio session player and a member of the famed Wrecking Crew. He had a tremendous career.

FYI - Trumpeters who did sessions with the crew included Bud Brisbois, Roy Caton, Chuck Findley, Ollie Mitchell, and Tony Terran.

I never missed his 70s tv show. I always liked his voice but his guitar playing was really something to behold.

Rest in peace, Glen.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy Webb a number of times over the last 8-10 years.
Jimmy once told me that Glen was the most gifted musician he had ever met.
High praise from one of the greatest composers of our time!
Back in the 70s Glen hosted the Midnight Special and George Benson was a guest. This was at the height of George's popularity. They did Affirmation together and it was blazing. Two of the greatest guitarists of any generation just kicking ass. George, like Glen doesn't read music either.

great song, strange lyrics though. but he was great musician and not a bad actor either.

my tribute to him anyway. i did it a few months ago just playing around with mouthpieces and software.

regards,

tom
