Lesson notes

Gentle On My Mind was written by John Hartford but really hit the big time when Glen Campbell released it on his 1967 album titled after the song. It later became the theme song for his TV show The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour. The song features a simple chord progression using moving melody notes over a single chord before changing. There really are only a few chords and the song is commonly played in either the key of C or D, using a very basic fingerpicking pattern.
