erm ye a few things. i watche this film for the first time last night (coincidentally) and at the start, it says the banjo bit is dubbed by some band or something.

Also, i watched it with my mates, one of which is the bassist for a reasonably big local band and another who is nicknamed "music nazi" but pointed out the mistake that the accoustic guitar has the capo on the wrong fret. apaprently it should be ont he fifth fret for banjo tune - loosers lol.

It`s an amazing lil banjo dual though. the kid is wierd.

I can play that song, not that fast, on mallet instruments.

Regardless of the song, that is one f*cked up movie. Anyone who hasn`t seen it and doesn`t know what it`s about, go watch it. Great movie if you never want to go into the back country again.

If any of you have ever seen Big Fish, the old man on the porch when Edward first walks into Spectre is the same actor who played the boy with the banjo in Deliverance.

1. Isn`t that guy playing a guitar?
2. I got a bit bored watching it. I don`t really like watching people play.... unless it`s at a wicked sweet concert or something.:-?

And also the film didnt write the song it was written and recorded in 1955 as "Feuding Banjos" by Country star Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith. When the song became a hit, he had to file a lawsuit to get credit for writing it.

Billy Redden (the boy with the banjo) did not know how to play banjo and was incapable of faking the playing sequence convincingly, and eventually another youngster was hidden behind his chair, with the sole task of providing the hand movements on the banjo.

The guy playing the banjo had an odd look on his face. Who is that guy? The actor I mean.

Those are some fast fingers. I wish I could play my guitar like that. Or buy me a banjo. Either way, lovely song (or jig).

`Twas a great movie. I live right next to West Vir`ginny, so I know these types of people. Sometimes, in the night, if I am very quite...I can hear their cries in the distance...Suuuuuweeeee! Suuuweeeee! Squelin` like a piggie!

I can play that little song they played on my guitar, both parts. I really need a banjo. And a bass while I am at it.
