Georgia on my Mind by Carmichael/Gorrell. I’ve also made a short lesson afterward to help students out. “Georgia on My Mind” was written by Hoagy Carmichael (music) and Stuart Gorrell (lyrics). It became the official state song of Georgia in 1979. The song was first recorded on September 15, 1930, in New York by Hoagy Carmichael and His Orchestra with Bix Beiderbecke on muted cornet and Hoagy Carmichael on vocals. It featured Eddie Lang on guitar. Solo Fingerstyle Guitar Arrangement for Late Beginner or Early Intermediate Level.
