Watch the Gentle Annie online guitar lesson by Stephen Bennett from Harp Guitar Basics

I learned this tune by the great American songwriter of the 19th century - Stephen Foster - from my friend Steve Gilmore. At the time, he was Chief of Police in Wheatland, Wyoming. I was in town to play a couple of shows and I spent those nights at his home. There I heard he and his kids play a version of Gentle Annie and I fell in love with the melody. I think it works great on harp guitar.
