Glen Campbell is an average guitarist, at best.
In this genre, Roy Clark, Ricky Skaggs, and Vince Gill are incredible. Brad Paisley is **** good.
Glen Campbell is neither of those. He is average, at best.

I don't think the topic of this post was to say Glen Campbell was the best guitarist during his time in country or bluegrass. It was his birthday and WE acknowledged it and it brought up positive memories for many of us growing up during his era. Heck, I like Jimmy Buffett and he is a horrible musician and singer but is a great entertainer.
I will acknowledge that Prince is a great musician but he is not my cup of tea. Never was.
I will go pretend I am a lineman for the county now. :wink
