Now we have a little experience playing notes on the A & E strings. Let's play another, slightly more complicated melody on these strings. We'll also include a few notes on the middle strings.

This is the melody from the song "The House of the Rising Sun".

As with all our melodies so far, go slowly, take your time. Learn where to put your fingers to play the notes properly. Gradually memorize the notes in order. Gradually get better at placing your fingers for the best possible sound out of each note.

Practice and have fun.
