Subject: RE: What does 'dueling' instruments mean?
The Deliverance sound track has only one tune that appeared in the movie and that is Dueling Banjos,(by the way I believe it's the only cut on the record that doesn't feature two banjos) recorded by Eric Weisberg and Steve Mandel. The rest of the record is a re-release of the record made in the '60s by Marshall Brickman and Eric Weisberg called New Dimensions In Banjo & Bluegrass. It also features the guitar of Clarence White. Even if you think of Dueling Banjos as a banjo cliché, this is a great recording and one of the earliest examples of melodic style banjo.
