The son of a sharecropper, Glen Travis Campbell was born in Arkansas on 22 April 1936, the seventh of 12 children.
His first guitar cost $7 and he taught himself to play.
Campbell made his name in the music business as one of the top session guitarists in Los Angeles, and helped hone producer Phil Spector's famous Wall of Sound technique.
Campbell played on hundreds of tracks including Daydream Believer by The Monkees, You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling by The Righteous Brothers, Strangers in the Night by Frank Sinatra and Viva Las Vegas by Elvis Presley.
I've tried and I've failed Lord
I've won and I have lost
I've lived and I've loved,
Lord Some times, at such a cost
One thing I know
The world is good to me
A better place awaits you'll see
Some days I'm so confused, Lord
My past gets in my way
I need the ones that I love,
Lord More and more each day
One thing I know The world is good to me
A better place awaits
Ooh A better place
