Re: String Question

Hey Scott... First of all...Thanks for looking in on us and joining! And you are absolutely right about Glen's popularity in England. It was HUGE! Strings...wow...I have never ever thought about that one. I have always gone with the string that best complimented my Ovation, acoustically. I will hit ...

Re: True Grit 50 Year Celebration in Ridgway, Colorado!

Your guess is as good as mine! May have just been a rehearsal! I doubt they let photographers on the set with all the camera angles... In the movie...they do not start that scene from that point...it is closer to the grave. It typically only snows in the upper elevations during October ... but it lo...

Where is the snow? I wonder if they took this during a rehearsal. Or maybe there is a blooper here. Gotta pull out the DVD.

Just as I had expected...

Re: Review: Glen Campbell, “The Legacy [1961-2017]”

Cowpoke, you are all over it. They had enough room on that last CD for all of those songs. Maybe it is tied to royalties...
I am with you...I don't know who the picker is, but, imo, they could have done a lot better.

Re: Glen Campbell's Ovation 1624 (Proto X014)

Just my observation about Glen's use of a nylon. Once Jerry joined the Goodtime Hour, Glen seemed to gravitate to nylons quite a bit more. Glen using Jerry's Baldwin, with its Prismatone caused quite a stir at Ovation, which in turn probably was the catalyst for Ovations hurried development of a pie...

Re: Bruce Springsteen pays tribute to Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb on solo album Western Stars

I wonder when (and how) Bruce made the correlation. It certainly seems like Glen's passing happened around the time he started the album. In April, Rolling Stone wrote... The first track off a forthcoming solo LP, “Hello Sunshine” is Springsteen’s precisely-calibrated throwback to a particular style...

Glen Campbell's 1940's Vega C-26 Archtop Guitar

A fter moving to Los Angeles in 1960, Glen Campbell released his first record at Capitol, Big Bluegrass Special , in 1962. It was a bluegrass album and the front cover certainly portrayed a bluegrass setting. I had come to think the guitar Glen was holding was a prop, as matching it up with a corre...
