House of the rising sun - cool swampy acoustic slide

Recommended Posts

House of the Rising Sun is like Stairway to Heaven for me - heard to death and never really looking to hear it again.... then I heard this version.

That is really a cool version!  Swampy is a great description.  Excellent!......I enjoyed this song when I first heard it in the early 60’s.  Then, when I heard The Animals with Eric Burden’s gutteral vocals, I was hooked forever.  ...

That was pretty cool. I've been playing House of the Rising Sun for 54 years now.  Never heard that version. The guitar does look in worse condition than Willie Nelsons. Haha.

So here's a friendly challenge for you, take your version and slide it on out.  See what type of swampy blues you can create...  love to hear it.  

'worse' then willie nelsons....'  i wouldn't say worse, just maybe a little more worn in.

Well, Willie does seem to have his guitar patched up with holes in it. I would have tossed it out for new long ago. I have a slide bar, I'm terrible with it. I had a steel guitar in my teens I played with a lot. Think it was my uncles, he played it great.

Here's your opportunity to maybe a hone a few of those corners...

What's the Joe Walsh song he does with the slide bar? Is it Rocky Mountain Way? Thats the one I want to eventually learn. The grandkids both loved Old Town Road because their mom played it a lot. Doesn't have anything to do with a slide bar but Deb and the kids made me learn Old Town Road for them. Haha, I kept saying I hated it. It was so stupid. "Oh No," they said,  "it's a big hit." Well, that songs on the bottom of my 50 songs I can do. Lol
