DUELING BANJOS ~ Guitar & Banjo Song ~ Deliverance

Published on Mar 30, 2014

The Dueling Banjos scene from the 1972 American thriller film “Deliverance” by John Boorman.

delicious. truly.

please note the Hollywood trickery, though… from that wiki place

Use in Deliverance

In Deliverance, a scene depicts Billy Redden playing it opposite Ronny Cox, who joins him on guitar. Redden plays “Lonnie,” a mentally challenged and inbred, but extremely gifted, banjo player. Redden could not actually play the banjo and the director thought his hand movements looked unconvincing. A local musician, Mike Addis, was brought in to depict the movement of the boy’s left hand. Addis hid behind Redden, with his left arm in Redden’s shirt sleeve. Careful camera angles kept Addis out of frame and completed the illusion, though anyone familiar with bluegrass banjo playing can see that the left-hand movements do not match up with the music produced, and that the banjo being used (an open-back instrument) could never produce the music one hears (clearly from a resonator banjo). The music itself was dubbed in from the recording made by Weissberg and Mandell and was not played by the actors themselves.[4] Two young musicians, Ron Brentano and Mike Russo, had originally been signed to play their adaptation for the film, but instead it was performed by Weissberg and Mandell.[5]

“Dueling Banjos” was arranged and performed for the film by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell, and was included on its soundtrack.[6] When Arthur “Boogie” Smith was not acknowledged as the composer by the filmmakers, he sued and eventually won, receiving songwriting credit as well as royalties.[7]

still yummy but I am very glad that the composer got paid!

Stringbean – Cripple Creek (Grand Ole Opry)

OldTmye TunesFive
Published on Apr 7, 2015

Posting Country Music Videos downloaded from


John A. Brown, String Bean’s murderer, has been up for parole 4 times over the last 12 years & denied each time. Brown has spent 37 of his 60 years in prison & will not get another chance for parole until 2017. When Brown is tearfully pleading for freedom, I wonder if he remembers String’s wife Estelle begging him to spare her life & how he answered her pleas by putting a bullet in her head. Since he should have been executed anyway, he should never be granted his parole.

David Akeman (June 17, 1916 – November 10, 1973), better known as Stringbean (or String Bean), was an American country music banjo player and comedy musician best known for his role on the hit television show, Hee Haw, and as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Akeman and his wife were murdered by burglars at their rural Tennessee home in 1973. Born in Annville, Jackson County, Kentucky, Akeman came from a musical family. He was taught to play the banjo by his father, James Roy Akemon. He got his first real banjo when he was 12 years old in exchange for a pair of prize bantam chickens. Akeman began playing at local dances and gained a reputation as a musician, but the income was not enough to live on. He joined the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps, building roads and planting trees.

Eventually, he entered a talent contest judged by singer-guitarist-musical saw player Asa Martin. He won and was invited to join Martin’s band. During an early appearance, Martin forgot Akeman’s name and introduced him as “String Bean” because of his tall, thin build. Akeman used the nickname the rest of his life.

Akeman originally was only a musician, but when another performer failed to show up one night, he was used as a singer and comic. From then on, Akeman did both comedy and music. He appeared on WLAP-AM in Lexington, Kentucky, and played with a several groups in the late 1930s.

Akeman also played semi-professional baseball. It was as a ballplayer that he met bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe, who fielded with another semi-pro team. From 1943 to 1945, Akeman played banjo for Monroe’s band, performing on recordings such as “Goodbye Old Pal”. He also teamed with Willie Egbert Westbrook as String Beans and Cousin Wilbur, a comedy duo who appeared on the same bill as Monroe’s band. When he left Monroe, he was replaced by Earl Scruggs, a banjoist with a very different style.

In 1945, Akeman married Estelle Stanfill. The same year, he formed a comedy duet with Willie Egbert Westbrook, and they were invited to perform on the Grand Ole Opry. The following year, Akeman began working with Grandpa Jones, a fellow old-time banjo player and comedian. Jones and Akeman worked together at the Opry and years later on the Hee Haw television series. They also became neighbors near Ridgetop, Tennessee. Akeman became a protégé of Uncle Dave Macon, one of the biggest Opry stars. Near the end of his life, Macon gave Akeman one of his prized banjos.

They oughta wall up that sumnummabeechin’ murderer like the royals used to do. John Brown, huh… another John Brown started a whole raft of sh!t back in the day down Maryland way. Beware John Browns. This one destroyed an American treasure. Bastard.

Anyway… I was so happy to find this and I was even happier that it was by Stringbean. This is a favorite from my formative years and I sing it to this day. I sing it with the lyrics he uses here, because that is the way it was sung on HeeHaw, which in my youth was a staple. All the other ones I’ve ever found have the lyrics as they were written, which to my ear, is “wrong,” even though it might be “right.” This is the way it should be. Actually there is a tube of it from HeeHaw where they do sing the almost the original lyrics, but that was whatcha call an anomaly.

Sorry for the sparse postings, things are a bit nuts around here.

Oh Stringbean there will never be another like you, Sir.

Had to put this up =]

This is the band of my online guitar teacher, the inimitable and highly talented Charlie Wallace.

He sure can play, can’t he, holy cow, but even better is the way he teaches… it is nothing short of fabulous.

I suffer from tremendous angst about it, though, (he told me not too so I’m not letting it stress me) but I just can not get the combination of time and concentration going to actually do it yet, even though fifteen minutes is cool.

I will do it. I need to do it. For my sanity. For my future. For a lot of things.

I’ve always had tremendous difficulty doing things for myself; and the better they’d be for me, the harder they would be to do. And guitar…whoa. Messed up… I know, but there it is. My guitar hung on my wall for years. Occasionally the notorious Bluesstringer would whisk it away and tune it up to keep it alive. I bought into Charlie’s epic gig to the max and am very glad I did. The guitar now sits next to me.

But still… my damn demons.

If you would, send good karma my way so the demons can be destroyed.

They need destruction really badly.

Got an email from Vic Firth via DRUM! magazine offering some new thingies for bangin’ on cajons (I am definitely getting at least one cajon pretty soon) so I went to the page and there were two demo vids, one was of Damon using these things on a song. I smiled. Damon is known to me…

I never actually met Damon in person, unfortunately, but we are or were email friends because way back in the day I did his website. That all happened because his dad Herb was assigned to be my business coach in the SCORE program. Gosh that was long ago. It was fun doing Damon’s site and I got to learn a couple of things and hear some outstanding music in the process. Good deal, eh? I hope it helped him. He and his band are just excellent and he has played with some really famous folks.

So enjoy eh!

Dos años después de Joan Chamorro presenta Rita Payés, que recibió el Premio Enderrock 2015 por votación popular a la mejor propuesta de jazz, me hace mucha ilusion este segundo cd con Rita: ” Lua Amarela” , en donde podemos constatar su evolución como trombonista y como cantante ( cada vez más solida, con una personalidad muy marcada por su exquisita sensibilidad a la hora de jugar con las melodias y su maravilloso timbre , personalisimo como pocos )

En esta linea de trabajo , en el contexto de la Sant Andreu jazz band, proyecto que cumple 10 años este 2016, entiendo que todo es importante para motivar, ( inlcuido este trabajo ), dar luz a aquella magia que todos llevamos dentro y que , mediante la exigencia mesurada en su justa medida , la confianza y el trabajo , pueden ver la luz cosas tan maravillosas como este ” Lua Amarela ” ,

In this line of work, in the context of the sant andreu jazz band, a project that turns 10 years this 2016, I understand that everything is important to motivate, (inclusive this job), give birth to that magic that we all carry inside And that, by means of a measure measured in its fair measure, trust and work, you can see the light as wonderful as this ” lua amarella

Tommy Emmanuel’s Jaw-Dropping Acoustic 12-Bar Blues

Posted 09/13/2017 by Laura B. Whitmore

If there’s anyone who can shred on acoustic guitar with jaw-dropping effect, it’s Tommy Emmanuel.

Hailing from Australia, yes, he has an excellent accent, and yes, he can put your fingerstyle moves to shame. But check out this video of a 12-bar blues. Here he runs through Arthur Smith’s “Guitar Boogie” and “Stevie’s Blues,” a song he wrote for the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan.

You might be flabbergasted when you finish watching. You might be shaking your head. Me, I have a big ear-to-ear grin and am gonna hit “replay.”

Throughout his career, Emmanuel has played with many notable artists including Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton and John Denver. He picked up the guitar at age 4 and as you can tell, he hasn’t put it down since. Emmanuel is on tour now. Find tour dates and more at

Peter was very pissed off when the record label initially called the band “Peter Green’s…”… it was a team, you dig?

Anyhoo, this is a pretty cool compilation of the Lord God and the awe-inspiring band he founded. B. B. King said Peter’s playing sent chills up his spine and his was the only playing that did.

I am grateful that Mick Fleetwood has kept the band going, although they don’t play Blues much anymore.

A mix of Peter Green stuff past and present, and some numbers from GM’s blues catalogue. Unfortunately there will not be a major tour to promote the album. Only a few festivals in Europe.

Mr. Moore feels the same way about Greeny as I do, well, maybe not the Lord God part, but he knows, man, you know? He knows. And fortunately for us, he is able to do something about it to share with the world. This album is the result and gosh it was way back in 1995. But music lives on. So here it is!

‘I like Dick Dale, I could appreciate him more during the surf period….like I was like…. I was anti-surf, you know? Because they were collegiate. They would like …like during the folk era, you know…The Kingston Trio…….. I was a beatnik….. I was more into jazz….grooving, sharing, umm….that kind of stuff, and like but Link Wray, man. Link Wray affected me so much that first of all, alot of my style, alot of my chords and stuff I got by copying, you know? I saw him on TV man. I’d never played guitar, and he had his guitar that looked so offensive, it was phallic…Rumble, man…..Rumble just blew me away. That’s what turned me on to playing guitar. He’s the father of the power chord. I still remember it as one of my strongest memories, man. It just burned itself in my mind. I heard Rumble….it was ’58. When I heard that, what I heard was, dirty, man. What he was doing was saying, f#ck man, kiss my ass, you know, real rebellious shit, you know, without saying it, you know?’ -John Cipollina

Quicksilver Messenger Service initially held back from signing a record deal but eventually signed to Capitol Records in late 1967, becoming the last of the top-ranked San Francisco bands to sign with a major label. Capitol was the only company that had missed out on signing a San Francisco freak band during the first flurry of record company interest and, consequently, QMS was able to negotiate a better deal than many of their peers. Quicksilver Messenger Service had appeared on the movie and soundtrack album Revolution.

Quicksilver Messenger Service released their eponymous debut album in 1968. It was followed by Happy Trails, released in early 1969 and largely recorded live at the Fillmore East and the Fillmore West. According to David Freiberg, at least one of the live tracks was augmented with studio overdubs and the tracks Calvary and Lady of the Cancer Moon were recorded in the studio just before Gary Duncan left Quicksilver Messenger Service.

These albums, which have been hailed as two of the best examples of the San Francisco sound at its purest define the classic period in the group’s career and showcase their distinctive sound, emphasizing extended arrangements and fluid twin-guitar improvisation. Cipollina’s highly melodic, individualistic lead guitar style, combined with Gary Duncan’s driving rhythm guitar, feature a clear jazz sound, a notable contrast to the heavily amplified and overdriven sound of contemporaries like Cream and Jimi Hendrix. In 2003 Happy Trails was rated at #189 in the Rolling Stone Top 500 albums survey, where it was described as the definitive live recording of the mid-Sixties San Francisco psychedelic-ballroom experience. Archetypal Quicksilver Messenger Service songs include the elongated, continually re-titled suite based on Bo Diddley’s Who Do You Love?. Additionally QMS had a reputation for joining their fans in the use of LSD during their live shows.

QMS’s guitar work shimmered with a brilliance and clarity which made other bands seem murky in comparison. Unlike most members of the other San Francisco acid rock bands, who were often folkies converted to rock, John Cipollina and Gary Duncan were rock musicians before forming their band. Gary Duncan’s playing clearly had the broadest scope of any guitarist among the S. F. bands and he had an expert facility to deliver it. Equally expert was John Cipollina, who also had the clearest vision of how he wanted to sound. Cipollina’s playing was so completely given over to that vision, and he presented it so well, that the question of scope never arose. John’s electric guitar playing was the musical essence of electricity itself, as though he was playing the current directly and the guitar was the valve that allowed him to do that.

Oh man, those were the days. Good days.

My Baby Is Gone – Original Mauro Samuel

My Baby Is Gone Away

My baby is gone, my baby is gone away
My baby is gone, my baby is gone away
Since you left this town
I feel so upset and down
My baby is gone away

I wake up in the morning
You gonna have to leave me now
My sky will fall rain gather too
Oh what can I do?
My baby is gone away

I’ve been worried about Mauro… discovered him years ago and used to post a lot of his fabulous guitar mastery, but it has been a long time since he posted. He put up a tone test the other day and I smiled.

I really hope he starts doing it regularly again… he is really good, don’t you think?

This song… me gusta mucho.
