Lesson Run Time: 64 minutes / Release Date: 09/22/2012
In this arrangement, House of the Rising Sun, we will learn how to go from a groove to adding the melody. By learning a few key rhythmic patterns, you can apply the melody on top and create a cool sounding arrangement. We will also cover 16th-note broken chords that give the song a lot of momentum and excitement. I will give you some improvisation tips and show you how to create your own arrangement by re-arranging the form.
