Lesson Info

This tutorial teaches you how to play a beginner arrangement of "House of the Rising Sun". There are only five open position chords you need to know to play the song. First I will introduce you to the song, then I'll show you how to play a simple strumming version. Next I'll show you how to pick through the notes in the chords, or "arpeggiate". Finally, we'll play through the song with a backing track using arpeggiation.
