Here's how to play the beginners classic House Of The Rising Sun! Here, I cover how to play the version by The Animals, but it's played the same in most versions of this song and works just as well on acoustic guitar as on electric.
This is one of the most popular guitar riffs for total beginners. However - it is pretty tricky! If you can't quite nail it - try any of these lessons to get your single string picking more up to speed...then revisit this in a few days or weeks when you have progressed.
For a rough TAB, click the chords icon above. However, for the full accurate TAB & lyrics/chords that I used to film the lesson - click the 'Songbooks' icon above to own this TAB in Andy's recommended songbook!
