House of The Rising Sun
Here is something I've been working on for a week or so. It started off as an idea in my head and after LOT's of thinking and a lot of practice runs it finally came to life.
The House of The Rising Sun (Violin Cover)
I love playing the Violin and I think the folksy, earth quality of this song really allows it to be told in a simpler style. The Violin allows the texture of the chords to have multiple lives and give the listener more variety.
I basically had to teach myself how to sing and play at the same time. NEVER thought I could, but with a lot of practice it became really manageable!
I'm currently staying at my girlfriend's parents condo while she is finishing up her current run of a show. Instead of dragging my violin downtown for a studio, I decided to set up the office with a single lamp light. I think the look turned out quite good!
Let me know what you think!
