My parents were never into horror films. So when they told me that a movie they saw terrified them for days, I knew that I had to see it. Keep in mind, I was maybe 12, at the oldest 13. So off we went to the local video rental shop and I got a copy of Deliverance, the infamous “Don’t go on a canoe trip after seeing this movie” film from 1972.
Perhaps the most famous scene from that film (aside from the whole “Squeal like a piggy!” scene) was the dueling banjos performance. The song became an iconic piece of our culture. In point of fact, even if you were to whistle it to someone who has never seen the film, they instinctively know the piece and associate it with redneck hillbillies that most certainly want to wear your skin as a fashion statement.
So what does all this have to do with music? I’ll tell ya! YouTube user Mark Kroos has uploaded an amazing video of him performing both parts of “Dueling Banjos” on a double-neck guitar. The dexterity and ease with which he plays it is nothing short of incredible. Seriously, give it a watch below.
