House of the Rising sun

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by sacrificetheory, Jan 18, 2003.


  1. I recently heard the version that Tracy Chapman did of the house of the rising sun, and im very impressed, by her. the bass line is very simple, but i love it, its really easy going...i was wondering if anyone else who has heard this version could tell me what kind of style this song would and how i would follow up learning stuff like that?

    p.s.

    im new to the forums, website and bass in general, so i pre-apologise for any stupidness.

    Have not hear this one! Love The Animals Version
    Also some great versions by country music!
    Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe!
    It starts off in C I think and all the notes are on the first 3 frets of the board!
