Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

August 24, 2011 | Glen Campbell; Wichita Lineman

If you grew up in the 60's and 70's and watched evening prime time television at all, there's high probablity the Glen Campbell show was in your life. In addition to the variety show, the often underrated musician had quite a pedigree, from recording with the Champs, sessions with the Beach Boys, picking with sideman Johnny Hartford, pioneering Ovation guitars and a 12-string guitar instrumental album, and some beautiful classic collaborations with songwriter Jimmy Webb, including the following song re-recorded a few years with the Stone Temple Pilots. No mandolin content here, but you can't help but appreciate a really good tune.

Many may not be aware of the artist's tragic bout with Alzheimer's. The 75 year-old is finishing a "farewell" tour this fall. We certainly wish him the best.
