Another loss to the music world. Gawd, how I grew to hate the Dueling Banjos song, but it's here for y'all. The movie that propelled the song, "Deliverance", is still a great watch.

I actually love that song.

Wasn't looking too good, but I was feeling real well.

Actor Billy Redden

"Because Redden could not play a banjo, he wore a special shirt which allowed a real banjo player to hide behind him for the scene,
which was shot with carefully chosen camera angles that would conceal the player, whose arms were slipped around Redden's waist to play the tune".
