The Hitching Post in Albuquerque, NM Where Glen Campbell Played

I t is unusual if you read an article about Glen's time in Albuquerque without The Hitching Post being mentioned. Some say it was Glen's home base, he was seen there so often.

Randy, thanks for adding that...I guess if you wear a red bandanna over there, that certifies you as "country". I wonder how big the crowd was!

ashcambanjo I miss the jams we used to have with my dad. Even while dealing with Alzheimer’s he still loved to play music with me and my friends.

The Curse of Semie Moseley's Acoustics

Semie Moseley never really knew what he was doing when it came to making acoustic guitars, he was more interested in making electric guitars. The woods were not properly dried out and the construction wasn't beefy enough, and the lacquer finish was put on with too many layers, too quickly. A sum of ...

Re: Early 60's W.G. Barker Archtop

Drew! Thanks for taking the time to post that information. So often, as you are aware, these guitars get lost after the picture is taken.
