I don't, but I want to register my protest that Duelling Banjos is played on a guitar and a banjo. What's the world coming to with all this doublespeak and misdirection?

Dueling Banjos was released as "Feudin' Banjos" by Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith & Don Reno (1955)

If I'm not mistaken, Smith played tenor and Reno 5-string.

Arthur Smith sued when the Deliverence movie came out and made a bundle off of the stolen song.

I don't think I need to hear it to believe it.

On second thought, which instrument answered which?

Wasn;t there a video game called Banjo Kazooie?

Does anyone know much about "Feudin' Banjos"?
How similar, or different, was the tune, compared to the well known (later) version?
Quack!

I have Feudin' Banjos. It's pretty similar to the Eric Weisburg version that was used in Deliverance.

The Darlings (really the Dillards) performed Duelling Banjos on an episode of The Andy Griffith show a few years before Deliverance came out.

If my memory is correct, and it rarely is these days, I believe that Mike Russo of the Portland, Oregon area was first approached to do the guitar part for the film. He turned it down, I don't recall the reason. Does anyone else remember this story? Cheers, Bob

God, the tune must go further back than 1955. I used to listen to "Mocking Banjo" on the radio. It was done with a mandolin answering the banjo or vice versa. Somehow I remember the old fiddlers playing a very similar tune that they called "The End of a Dream."

I just listened to Feudin' Banjos again the other day. It's amazing how fast that Arthur Smith could flat pick that tenor. Don Reno moves it along pretty quickly himself.

Rumor has it that Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith gave Don Reno a few guitar lessons in the early 1950's. "Country Boy Rock & Roll" is probably the opening salvo in the current flatpicknig wars, not to detract one bit from my all-time fav Doc Watson.

"End Of A Dream" with banjos is on the old album "New Dimensions In Bluegrass" along with "Duellin' Banjos."

"Dueling Banjos" album from the early 70's was a slightly re-worked re-release of "New Directions In Banjo and Bluegrass" by Weissberg and Brickman, about 1962. Removed two or three numbers and reordered two or three others, substituting the Mandel/Weissberg tune from the movie. This is still found used in Goodwill and Salvation Army stores, the 1962 Elektra is certainly not easy to find. Clarence White does about half of the guitar work, but only the earlier record tells which breaks are his.

Ah..The album I'm talking about is called "New Dimensions In Bluegrass" and it was released in the early 60's along with "Folk Banjo Styles." The album in question is now: (Warner Brothers BS 2720)
