Any song with Glen Campbell, whether his own work or as a studio musician or contract player.

GC was a virtuoso.

Heard an interview with Alice Cooper on his good pal Glen.  AC said that Eddie Van Halen asked him if he could get a guitar lesson with Glen.  

Due to the style of country music, most fellas who "came up" in this style of music play very clean.

Look at other country virtuosos like Roy Clark.  Tones as clean as a whistle.
