A few weeks back, Cali and I had the chance to see Glen Campbell at the Hollywood Bowl. I've worked on this arrangement for about a month now. The original key is Eb, but I put it into G.

Hello, Craig. Another superb video. It's nice to hear the story behind the song, about you and Cali seeing his show recently, which inspired you to do the song.

I read that, and I may have remembered this wrong, Glen has Alzheimer's, early stage, and this is his swan song tour.

I, too, remember his TV show, The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, 1969-1972 (according to wiki).

He was quite popular back then, as you know, Craig. Thanks for the great video, you play it well.

And, thanks for the pdf lesson on chording up the fretboard you sent me a couple weeks back. I'm working on it and getting better! -- Steve

Postscript: I answered my own question about Glen. Sad. For everyone with Alzheimer's.

Thanks again, Craig. Beautifully played by you.

My wife, Cali Rose, is a much better blogger than me and here's a link to her post regarding Glen: http://calirose.com/blog/?p=235

Thanks again for the kind words and I'm glad you're working on the harmonized F major scale. I've also recently posted, "Yesterday" with free TAB: http://youtu.be/HSJ_c0YFPvQ

I've got a few videos to make before school starts in August!
