Subject: RE: What does 'dueling' instruments mean?
So a little more trivia. The Dillards played the role of the hillbilly Darling family on the Andy Griffith show. They actually played Duelling Banjos on the show once.

I do have a couple of problems with Deliverance. I play the banjo and I'm kind of sick of telling this to people only to have them say "Squeal like a pig" or cross their eyes and mimic the opening from Duelling banjos. The other problem is constantly being asked if I know how to play duelling banjos (yes, badly). But people, there's a lot more than one great banjo tune.
