Re: Glen's special Guitar Tuning?

Taki, Interesting. Something to kick around! Quick answer...I haven't a clue. For the fans...A cent is a measurement used to measure how far apart two pitches are and is equal to 1/100th of a half step. I think there are 1200 cents in an octave. It is certainly a precise measurement when tuning. The...

60's Fender Precision Bass

T he first Precision Bass was produced in October 1951. Leo Fender borrowed a lot of characteristics from the Telecaster at the time, including the headstock, neck plate, truss rod nut, and control knobs. The 1957 headstock was made in the image of the first 1955 Stratocaster and remains today. The...

Re: Glen and Elton John Collaborate on Elton's The Lockdown Sessions

Willie seems lackluster on most of his stuff now. I think his lung capacity has been greatly limited by age and maybe by excess...but he struggles with lyrics and rushes through them because of that...I believe. Nashville would have loved Glen to commit to CW. I think that is why Chet seemed a littl...

Re: Glen and Elton John Collaborate on Elton's The Lockdown Sessions

KMFrye54 Totally agree...and I could take either side of the conversation. But it is how things are done today. Whether the artists are dead or alive. Send me the * track and I will add (vocal, guitar, drum, whatever) Glen did nothing new for this record (for obvious reasons), so I think the respons...

Remake of Last Album?

Interesting... "Glen Campbell's people got in touch and said they were doing a remake of his last album" Elton John Liner Notes: This track came about because I once said in an interview that the original version was one of the most beautiful songs I'd ever heard as it's about his battle w...

Re: Glen and Elton John Collaborate on Elton's The Lockdown Sessions

No...I haven't seen any Oscar references for Elton, Glen, or Elton and Glen.
Elton got one last year for Rocketman.

Elton obviously dug this song.
