Nice Job!  I slaughtered this song in a jam last Thursday night.  Now I know what the banjo is supposed to sound like on House of the Rising Sun.

You play and sing with a lot of soul. As with the other tune-great job!

Great job, I would just say this:  own it, i.e., change the lyric back to the original poor "girl", which gets back to the original meaning of the song.  I hear the Animals lyrics ("on the drum" instead of "on the drunk"), but the song is more sinister and sadder than the Animals lyrics, actually quite startling.  I love the energy of this version.  The last line is a nice twist, and owning it, which is precisely what I am driving at.  Great job.

Why do they call it the house of the rising sun?  Own it.

You have an rock solid intro on that banjo. Its a real odd way to play. I like it.  I wish there was more myspace website with you, maybe I'd hear more music from you! Or please just add in some tunes :) . Keep dobro sound. It goes good with the tone of your voice.  Please add some more !
