New Orleans – part of US-identity

[this is my blog post no. 1000] – Hurricane Isaac was friendly this time to New Orleans (not so to the surrounding towns). Of course one cannot forget the days of Katrina. So much was destroyed! But New Orleans seems to be (for me, not for you?) an important fragment of US-identity – or not? Should be damned like Las Vegas? Are there differents in the opinion between Republicans and Democrats? A question from Europe. My tribute to a certain New Orleans feeling: fingerpicking on my guitar “The House Of The Rising Sun“…

if you have time for my youtube video, featuring the same song in the second time very fast, nearly Gypsy swing, isn’t it?

now the breathtaking version by Tommy Emmanuel:
