Hi All:

Did anyone see the CNN special "I'll Be Me" that aired last night? It was sad, but it also brings back to light the incredible talent of Glen Campbell. Today I got chord progression for "Gentle On My Mind" and I am learning the piece. Beautiful.

If I remember correctly, Glen Campbell was the country's highest paid studio/session guitarist before he set out on his own.

Not to mention part of the Wrecking Crew and a Beach Boy! :D

GLEN CAMPBELL & ROY CLARK - BOTH PLAY SAME GUITAR - JERRY LEWIS MDA TELETHON, 1992 (304)

A bit ...weird, but to each his or her own!

I wouldn't mind playing two guitars with Orianthi, however. :D

Glen Campbell, an amazing musician. When I was a kid, I chuckled at the notion of Glen Campbell until I saw him jam with Roy Clark!
