Re: Glen Campbell's Museum in Nashville

Thanks for that jay, I must say I really admire the knowledge you bring to this forum in relation to Glen's guitar history and guitars in general. When I was a lot younger I assumed that the guitars Glen used were used for a few years and then disposed of in one way or another, but then of course as...

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

jay, I really feel your frustration, as I think a simple look on line would find the hardcore fans like us very easily and they could then at least ask the question, "what would you like to see on this album" ?. Sadly as Cowpoke mentions it may be just not worth their while for the commercial risk t...

Re: Glen Campbell's Museum in Nashville

Hi Jay, Those are great pictures of the museum and Glen's guitars. I hope that these guitars are well looked after and are secure. Just a quick question, Has any mention been made of whether Glen left any of his guitars to his children, who I am sure would treasure them and could certainly play them...

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

It's a good list Cowpoke. But to answer your question why they didn't include more on the cd "love is the answer" :D Seriously though it does make you wonder why, It also begs the question who they considered the box set is aimed at. Normally a box set would be a fan favourite, something special to ...

Re: Announcing Glen Campbell's Newest DVD/CD Releases

I couldn't agree more Cowpoke, regarding you comments on the legacy set. I would also add that they could just have added an extra disc into the set and leave the live performances in, as I think it was good to hear how good Glen was in his live shows. Bobbie Gentry box set is 8 cds' so why not Glen...

Re: Rest in Peace Bill Graham

Hi Cowpoke, To be honest I didn't know that. Thanks for sharing the video. It seems to me Bill was under the radar a bit as regards his song writing abilities, that's why it was a wonderful thing to have Glen cover his work. I am sure like Jimmy he must have felt very pleased to have access to a won...

Re: Rest in Peace Bill Graham

Hi Guys, Haven't been in touch for a while, but I was just reading a few of your posts. It is sad to read of the passing of Bill Graham. I never met him, as he wasn't part of Glen's band when I got to see Glen live, but I have heard him talk about how he loved Glen and really appreciated that Glen r...

Re: Glen Campbell's Gibson B25-12N Twelve String

Hey 12string, It's great to hear from a fan of such long standing. Good on you for keeping up with the playing as well. How on earth did you find that Gibson guitar after all this time and does it feel nice to play on. I would think those tunes would be quite a challenge to learn especially as you h...

Re: Your Stories and Memories about Glen

sailor41, You must treasure those memories of seeing Glen in his prime when he was a big star at his peak. I saw Glen for the first time in the 1980s and every time he came to the UK. He never did a bad show.

Re: Which Ovation is considered the best?

I have to agree with your comments guys, I have GC 1627 acoustic and a new Ovation Acoustic/electric guitar. I play the acoustic at home and the electric at the folk clubs I go to. However I never stand up as I find the guitars difficult to hold in position and makes finger picking awkward. It is a ...
