My teacher taught me a bluegrass style of "House of the Rising Sun" that is A, D, E with one G thrown in.
I'd like to see that..! The version i play has B7..& B.. ! Which i find difficult!
I'll put up the chord progression in a bit. Just wanted to respond before I forgot.
Ok, this is what I have for Chord Progression, it's Appalachia/Blue grass style.
This is the same for each stanza. I have done it mostly strum style, but, it sounds pretty good with a finger picking chord style as well.
Yeah, I find the B chords difficult as well, which is why I work with my teacher on so many Beatles Songs since they have a lot of B chords in them.
Anyway, try that chord sequence out and let me know what you think. I haven't done "House of the Risng Sun" this style in months. But, it fell into place for me pretty fast once I started to tinker. So tinker with it, play with it.
