You're back? Depending on how far along you are with guitar lessons, you might have noticed that "House Of The Rising Sun" isn't quite as easy as you think. If that's the case, don't give up! Although it's classified under easy guitar songs, it can be demanding for a raw beginner.
Here are some Tips...
Make sure you know how to play all the chords.
If the F chord is difficult try using a capo. And make sure to use light guage strings as well. Remember if you use a capo you'll be at a higher pitch -- so it won't match the videos on this page. That's fine! Play the song on it's own and refer to the videos for guidance.
Remember the beat is in a straight 6/8 feel.
Practice changing basic chords in the meantime and come back to "House Of The Rising Sun" at a later time. No need to give up in frustration!
You'll need to dedicate some time to practice. At least 15 to 20 minutes everyday.
Look through some of the guitar lessons for beginners under the "Beginner" tab on the navigation bar.
Watch the videos. Your brain can learn a lot by watching. But don't forget to practice.
Is it mainly the F chord that you're struggling with? Here's an excellent lesson on barre chords that will help.
Even though "House Of The Rising Sun" is considered to be one of the classic easy songs to play, it will still take some practice! But it's a beautiful song and much more than just a guitar lesson for beginners - it's a rite of passage :-)
