    Funny. But you'd think being out of tune would really bother a dog.

    Funny!
    My cat hated it when I missed notes on the piano. He would wiggle his ears and glare until I got it right. Best music teacher ever! I took up strings (guitar and mando) after he passed. I hope my next cat likes the mandolin etc.

    Hi Cecily,

    I had a cat for many years who loved my piano. He'd lay down under it (it's a grand) whenever I played, and if I skipped a day or so, he'd bug me to play for him. He eventually passed (17.5 years of age) and we now have three cats who don't care about the piano at all. Two of the three like my mandolins when they are in the mood. The third loves my mandolins. He comes running to listen almost every time I play. Funny how they have their likes and dislikes, just like us. That's part of the pleasure of living with cats!

    Best wishes, Bob

    I once read that the banjo was played in the movie using the same technique, the real banjo player hiding behind Billy Redden.

    Now, who is hiding behind C.T.?

    I mean they are dogs...haha! To Cecily, the shyest of my 3 cats loves my mandolin/guitar playing and drumming (she loves to attack the drumsticks) Then of course, her trying to put her paw against the strings might be her trying to tell me to stop killing her ears...

    I yi yi! The tune is annoying enough when it's done well. This here horror show ... It looks like the dogs are in pain. I'm calling the ASPCA!

    PS: BTW & FWIW, The song is called "Duelling Banjos;" "Deliverance" is the movie. Back, oh, ten years ago, when I was in a duo that played mostly classic country, we would get requests for "Deliverance." And also "O Brother," since "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" was out then. Now, I knew the customers meant "Duelling Banjos" and "Man Of Constant Sorrow," and would have been fine with playing them, but the cantankerous guitarist/singer/front man would say something snarky instead, something along the lines of, "Hey, we can't play a whole freakin' movie." Nice, huh? (We used to get lots of requests for "Redneck Woman," too, which wasn't gonna happen, either, for different reasons. My comeback was that all we could sing from that song was "Hell yeah and yee haw!" ) Funny to find myself in a band now which plays both of these as a matter of course.

    FP, you and I really need to work together some day. I have the same snarky guitarist. It makes me cringe when he does that.

    Hey Tim, next time I'm in Jersey and feel like playing some Irish tunes, I'll look you up! Must warn you about two things, though:

    1) I don't know much about Irish music, and don't know what to do with the few tunes I know, other than repeat them repeatedly;
    2) I was kind of on the guitarist's side. About the playing of the songs, that is, not the rudeness.

    PS: I'm currently vexed by "Star Of Munster," which the newest member of my swing band, the banjo player, insists on playing 2-3 times each gig. Why a swing band is playing this, I don't know. (Other than to feed his ego, natch.) I barely stumble through the A part, and have made up something quite different for the B part. I know I should learn it, but somehow I can't find the time ...
