Always On My Mind (Elvis Presley) – Fingerstyle Guitar Lesson and TAB

Elvis Presley








This is the full fingerstyle guitar lesson for Always On My Mind.

This song was originally written by Wayne Carson, Johnny Christopher and Mark James and was first recorded by Brenda Lee. Many artists have gone on to cover it and for this arrangement I’ve focused on Elvis Presley’s wonderful version of it.

The arrangement is reasonably tricky to play at times and I’d say it’s best suited to the intermediate and above player.

Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Always On My Mind!
