Subject: RE: What does 'dueling' instruments mean?
I found The Dillards web site ( It has a history of the group, which says that The Dillards first album was recorded in 1963, and that it included the cut Duelin' Banjos.

If that's the case, I find the claims above that the title Dueling Banjos wasn't used for the tune until the movie Deliverance was made in the 1970s to be highly suspect.
