    Work on those lines in the Big Sky!

    Glen Campbell, the upbeat guitarist from Delight, Arkansas, whose smooth vocals and down-home manner made him a mainstay of music and television for decades, has died, his family announced on Facebook on Tuesday. He was 81.

      Sad to hear that. He was a great musician.
      My favourite album was Rhinestone Cowboy.

        I never really got into his music, but I remember him being real popular in the 60's when I was a kid. RIP, Glen.

          Shame, I liked him, quite a chatacter, and good friend of Elvis. He had been ill for some time but retained his sense of humour I beleive..

            Most people have no idea of how great a guitarist Glen was. He was absolutely brilliant and was in high demand as a studio musician before he hit it big on his own. He also played guitar for the Beach Boys for a period of time.

              isn't it a handicap not being able to read music if youre a studio musician?

              JC- these guys (and ladies Carol Kaye was the go-to bass player who came up with the bass riff for "These Boots are Made for Walkin") really didn't need to read music notation in the conventional sense- all they needed to know was the changes. They then developed a sound around the song that fit the mood-- and really made the song.
              "Nashville" notation is numeric--not notes- like 1, 1 5,3 1. That's how the lead sheets have been written out for years. And used by some of the best players in the world. My suspicion is, this wasn't just true of studio musicians either.
              If you read the story about the Wrecking Crew (or see the film), you learn that they stepped in when the 'squares' were finally forced to give ground to the "new music." The traditional bigger acts has session guys who wore suits and were very business like. The Wrecking Crew was a bunch of super talented people who weren't necessarily groomed to impress- they wound up being so busy they'd be booked for multiple sessions in different places. Check out the documentary. It was made by Tommy Tedesco's son, so it is a little biased in favor of his dad, but you still get to see all these great players at work. Their discography would blow you away. The Byrds, The Mamas and the Papas, The Monkees, the Sinatras, Sonny and Cher, Elvis, Simon & Garfunkel, etc. These folks didn't just play the music, they conceived and shaped it into the sound we now associate with U.S. pop in the '60s. They were Phil Spector's go to band as well.

              Yes, the numbers are based on the intervals in the minor, major, etc scales. So are the chords. I don't think Hendrix necessarily knew the notes either.

              Ran across this earlier tonight about the Beatles.

            He had a rough ride at the end- his family seemed to really support him-- we saw him perform a few years ago as part of his good-by tour- he was obviously addled, but still had those killer guitar chops.mep - he was a member of the Wrecking Crew, that unsung group of studio pros behind so many pop/rock records from the mid-'60s on.
            Sad to lose him, but Alzheimer's is brutal, so I think it is probably a blessing.

              Campbell is in country music hall of fame but a good argument could be made he belongs in rock 'n' roll hall of fame too.
