This tutorial is for a Diatonic Harmonica
LEARN HOW TO BEND with Liam Ward:

"The House of the Rising Sun" is a traditional folk song, sometimes called "Rising Sun Blues". It tells of a person's life gone wrong in the city of New Orleans. Many versions also urge a sibling or parents and children to avoid the same fate. The most successful commercial version, recorded in 1964 by the British rock band The Animals, was a number one hit on the UK Singles Chart and in the US and Canada.[1] As a traditional folk song recorded by an electric rock band, it has been described as the "first folk rock hit".[2][3]
The song was first collected in Appalachia in the 1930s, but probably has its roots in traditional English folk song. It is listed as number 6393 in the Roud Folk Song Index.

Tune Basics is the popular music education series created by #musician/content creator Kerin Gedge (That's Me). It's purpose is to teach anybody who wants to learn the very basics of how to play Musical Instruments which includes DiatonicHarmonica, TremoloHarmonica with 24 holes, Tremolo Harmonica with 16 holes, Tremolo Harmonica with 20 holes, ChromaticHarmonica, kalimba with ten keys, recorder and PennyWhistle (also known as TinWhistle).
Tune Basics aims to introduce he student with clear animated instructions for how to play basic and recognisable songs. Tune Basics avoids delving into technique or styles but will, where possible, provide relevant links to professional musicians who can take the learner deeper when they want to move on from basic lessons.
TuneBasics also provides HarmonicaTabs TinWhistleTabs /PennyWhistleTabs and KalimbaTabs on the Tune Basics blog, link provided above. Please be sure to browse my harmonica TABS list as there may be harmonica tabs there that haven't yet been made into a tutorial for this channel!
TuneBasics believes that ANYONE can learn to play harmonica (or whatever instrument for that matter!). It doesn’t matter how old you are or what you don't know about music. If you can follow the this how to video then you’re well on your way to becoming a musician. But don’t expect to “get it” over night. Practicing your instrument will always make perfect. Sometimes you may need to watch these tutorials a few times to get the hang of a song. Most melodies on Tune Basics are broken up into simple manageable phrases so learn one phrase at a time! Pause, practice and then continue. And when you’re ready to move onto more complicated lessons check out Liam Ward at or Tomlin Lecki at Did I mention they're awesome? And way better harmonica players than me!

What else can I tell you?
If this isn't the song for you or you're looking for something else to play on your harmonica then click on my playlists! I have tons of other easy songs available for not just the diatonic harmonica but also for Tremolo and Chromatic! Am I repeating myself? But seriously, check out my playlists!
All my tutorials are made using Adobe Animate. Special thanks to Unsplash for the stock photos and Logic Pro X for the audio which I painstakingly record myself!
The harmonica sounds are unfortunately made with a Sampler. What you hear in these videos is actually my harmonica which has been recorded and modified on Logic Pro X, which is why it sounds "synthy"... but doing this way allows me to make my tutorials faster!
