Ex­Am­plE Glen Camp­bell rhythm


[Rhythm part: Bar 1] Th­ese chords aren’t too much of a chal­lenge though the tempo is quite brisk, so make sure you keep the strum­ming hand re­laxed and loose through­out. In a ses­sion Glen would have to get it right first time! [Rhythm part: Bar 9] mov­ing in­ner voices within chords is an old song­writer’s trick that was es­pe­cially com­mon in the Broad­way days – and the fa­mous intro to Stair­way To Heaven!
