    Default New series of review articles of every Eagles album.

    Hello. I am writing a series of articles analyzing each Eagles album.
    Here is the first covering the 1972 debut album.

    "Take The Devil" is a song written and sung by Meisner. Leadon's guitar solos really shine.


    Umm, it's Glenn on lead guitar, isn't it?

    Earlybird is really a showcase for Leadon who sings lead as well as plays banjo and electric guitar.


    Glenn on electric.

    "Tryin'" is another song by Meisner, who takes on lead vocals. Once again, it is a showcase for Leadon's guitar wizardry, but it's not the strongest of tracks.

    Bernie plays the rhythm guitar part that starts the song. The rest is Glenn.

    For some reason I missed the part where you said that you were the writer, so there were some harsh words in my second post. I edited it since I don't wish to offend you.I confess that I'm a Glenn fan, so such errors are all I see.

    Yes! Yes it is...

    Glenn was never given proper props for his guitar ability. "Oh Felder must have played that. Oh Leadon must have played that. Oh Walsh must have played that.". Sometimes it's almost like I feel they are saying "Oh Glenn *couldn't* have played that". Glenn was a jack of all trades. Great singer, great frontman with charisma, great bandleader, great lyricist/arranger, great guitarist, etc.

    No offense taken. I want these articles to be as accurate as possible so I appreciate feedback.

    Actually I think it's great that you post them here, because here you will hear about possible errors.

    As for Earlybird, Glenn is doing all the electric guitar stuff including slide guitar (did them live as well), but I'm not sure who plays the acoustic rhythm guitar. I've always assumed it's Bernie.

    Bernie tended to play the guitar parts on Randy's songs that Randy came up with when he wrote the songs. Bernie told me that on his website when he answered questions. In Tryin' it's the main rhythm guitar, on Take The Devil (and Certain Kind Of Fool) it's the acoustic. Whereas Glenn thought of something else to play. Usually his "rhythm" part on Randy's songs wasn't a "rhythm" part as such.Glenn played lead on all the Randy songs as well as Timothy's song.
