Watch the House of the Rising Sun online guitar lesson by Tommy Emmanuel from Fingerstyle Breakthroughs

In this segment Tommy shows you how to play the song "House of the Rising Sun".

This is an old song that makes a wonderful instrumental, the most popular likely being The Animals' version. The melody in this tune is based on the vocal melody, played over a boom chick bass line. There's some ideas stolen from Chet Atkins from a version he played with Mark Knopfler, and even an original Tommy Emmanuel lick thrown onto the end of the verse!
