Ever Gentle on My Mind
BY ANNE MARGARET DANIEL
NO DEPRESSION
AUGUST 7, 2017
Glen Campbell's voice was gentle...but his playing was full of crystal control and rolling soul. He didn't bash his guitar or showboat; he just knew everything about it and how to make it sound out....
This is a tremendous article with videos written by not just a music critic but also a long-time Glen Campbell fan.

Why has there been such a tremendous outpouring of love and loss for Glen since he passed away?
(We fans know why, but this discussion well sums up the legacy of Glen Campbell.)

Great article by a professional guitar player who was inspired by Glen Campbell. Talks about Glen's "restraint" in his playing.

That's right Randy. Douwe Bob is one of the new stars over here and he is wearing his Glen Campbell loving heart on his sleeve!
