House of the Rising Sun Guitar Lesson

House of the rising sun is a great song for you to play on acoustic guitar, and it sounds very nice since we are using arpeggios when playing these guitar chords – TAB BELOW:




Playing these arpeggios in house of the rising sun should be fairly easy, since all we are really doing is playing one note at a time instead of strumming the chords. Each chord gets four notes played and this song begins with an A minor chord, then goes into C major, followed by D major open chord and then into a partially barred F major chord. The F chord could get play as a full bar chord, but this is not necessary as the lower string notes are not play and a partial F is usually easier to play anyways.

This often means that you’ll need to hold each chord down tightly and pick with solid down strokes to avoid buzz noises that may occur. Another key element to sounding great is too have seamless chord transitions, with no silent pauses between chords. This requires quick and accurate finger placements when switching guitar chords.
