    I told you I had no talent . . . that dog plays better than I do!
    Five mandolins, ten electric guitars, one acoustic guitar, one electric bass, two lap steel guitars, one ukulele, one electric keyboard, a handful of percussion instruments . . . zero talent.

    The Deliverance banjo scene was done the same way.

    From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Redden

    At the age of 16, he was selected for a role in Deliverance from his school in Georgia by the director John Boorman to portray a banjo-playing "local" during the film's famous "dueling banjos" scene. Boorman felt that Redden's skinny frame and large head, and almond shaped eyes made him the natural choice to play the part of an "inbred from the back woods." 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.
