the-animalsHouse of the Rising Sun Saxophone Music

An old American folksong that was recorded and made famous by The Animals in 1964 from which this instrumental sax version was inspired by.

One of the most memorable songs from the mid sixties British Invasion and a lot of fun to play on the saxophone.

Along with the entire melody is also included the accompanying background chordal notes for the organ solo and the doubling to the main guitar arpeggio part which for the sax comes in after the organ solo.

Download version is in the key of A minor, which is the same key as the Animals version. This translates into B minor for tenor and soprano saxophones and F sharp minor for the alto and baritone saxophones.
