Thanks, Cowpoke - I really appreciate the compliment. Believe it or not, I wasn't aware of Glen's guitar genius until a student requested to learn the "Terric Guitar Break" version of "Gentle on My Mind" that jimmy cee has on YouTube. Now, this particular student is not a GC fanatic, that was just a random request he had that week.

I figured it out and showed it to him, and then I started exploring more.

I knew who he was, of course, and I knew he was in the Wrecking Crew, But I heard something exceptional in that solo and started to seek out other stuff. Lo and Behold.... funny how life turns on such random encounters sometimes..

Oh , and if anyone is interested, Here's the original video I made - The first Glen Campbell Guitar guitar solo instruction video ever on Youtube!

Danny, thanks so much for posting these videos. I am really trying to get to play one of the more easy solos.
I was very impressed by your latest video on My Window Faces the South. You are a great player yourself!

Got another one for anyone who is watching ( I honestly have no idea)

Learning a lot about Glen by learning his solos. I like this one because it's a really early example of the unique ways that Glen arranged the notes he used.
Dee explained to me Glen's early admiration for Django Reinhardt, that helped me understand where he was coming from in some of his ideas.
Anyway, here it is, and here it will stay.

ENJOY!

Got another one done - a fun one and you don't have to be a virtuoso:

Neat little country solo by Glen. A little fast, but not out of reach like some of his other solos
that I'm trying to get together Fun to play at a moderate tempo, too.

Hey all, new lesson for you-
"Sun Do Shine"

Cool little solo by GC. It's easy, and it's not. If you have some experience with country techniques, it's not hard at a moderate speed, but it's a little tough to get at full speed. Very tasty, and one of the few Glen solos playable by mortals.

Thanks for the link jay, I doubt I could copy Glen, but it's great to see the way it's done.

If you play guitar, you already know how talented Glen is, by it being almost IMPOSSIBLE to replicate his solo's.
Danny Schorr has an instructional channel on YouTube and has begun to share (FREE) lessons on some of Glen's solos (you can also find other great guitar lessons on his channel)!
These videos are extremely helpful in working through the complex runs that Glen pulls off so effortlessly.

A lesson that most beginners can jump on is Guitar solo cover & lesson: Glen Campbell " Little Doll" - An EASY G.C. solo

Another example of a tough solo that Danny breaks down for us is How to play the guitar solo to Glen Campbell's 'Gentle on My Mind". Even if you do not play guitar, check out this video to see how Glen can fly through a solo that is complex.
