A little culture for those that need it

A class performer and too bad we don't have more like him today. Bob
He was very talented. It always amazes me watching these guys playing the guitar. I always wanted to play the guitar but with short fat fingers I could never play the frets on a guitar.
I really believe these musicians have that talent built into them. The way they play is not something I think the average person can learn.
He had his own show back in the day. It was great entertainment.
I always enjoyed his talent and music abilities.
he was one of the good ones no doubt
I also enjoyed Roy Clark they made a great pair.
also agree I always wanted to play the guitar or Bajo ( my grand father could but I missed out ) best I could do was pick my nose and play the radio 😕
I liked John Hartford even better. Saw him in very small concerts a couple of times playing guitar or fiddle and creating percussion dancing on a plywood board with sound pickups.
John Hartford wrote Glen's greatest hit, Gentle on My Mind. I saw John in concert in Macon, Georgia, very talented.
Pretty good in True Grit, also.
Extreme NE TN/W NC ya'll. 😁
Here is some real pickin.
GC was a very underrated musician
Many years ago went to see Glen at Saratoga Performing Arts Center near Albany, NY with my dear departed sweetheart Diane. Still have his Souvenir Picture Book and tickets. His plane was very late coming into Albany airport. I mean he was very late by over one half hour as i recall. It was becoming very uncomfortable but not one person got up to leave. All of a sudden he appeared on stage without announcement and started to sing "Rhinestone Cowboy." He brought the house down with standing ovation as did every other song that night. It was a magical night for me and my sweetheart Diane. ------------------Ray
Ray, Thank you for sharing that.
I think my favorite was "Thank God and Greyhound" if I got that right. "Right or left at Oak Street" or maybe it was " I reached out my hands and touched you but I let you slip right thru my hands" So many great ones------------------Ray
Galveston has a special meaning for some of us that were wearing green in the late 1960s.
