How to play Burning House by Cam – Guitar Lesson Tutorial

How to play Burning House by Cam

In this guitar lesson tutorial, we look at how to play Burning House by Cam. It is the second song to be released as a single from her album ‘Untamed’.

The song features a beautiful finger picked acoustic guitar along with piano, synth and strings. The finger picking was apparently inspired by ‘Nothing Else Matters’ by Metallica.

  4. Do you have any tabs yet? It was so beautiful! I am new guitar playing so a tab would help so much! Thanks!

  5. Maranda Venneri

    Thank you!!!!!!

  6. Erica Sunshine Lee

    Thank you for this great lesson and for taking it slower, I couldn't keep up with some of the other guys teaching it, but your pace was great for me. Thanks! Can you do a tutorial on one of my new songs on my ELIXIR album? Perhaps the picking to the song "KARMA" or the lick on "Medicine"?

  7. What is that pickup on your guitar and are you using it on this tutorial ?

  8. Dear Paul, for teaching purposes, a guitar with fret markers/dots would be helpful (not to look a gift horse in the mouth). Also, for intermediate and less advanced students some of the performance examples, indicated as nice and slow, could actually be much slower. But, it sounds like you've nailed the guitar part on this tune. And, I couldn't have figured it out on my own. Again, Thanks so Much!
