OK, I had a draft - From Doolin-Dalton¹ to Dueling Banjos - to have featured the Henley/Frey/Browne/Souther song, followed by Buck Trent (not Owens) and the incomparable Roy Clark, riffing on the song from Deliverance.
But, alas, Denney Crane ran the Trent/Clark version before I could complete my draft, so it remains in Blogger purgatory. I'm surmising DC and I both happened upon the banjo video as a sidebar to a vid posted by Keith over at BON.
So anyway, while perusing a CBS morning show tribute by Stevie Wonder to the late Prince, I noticed he was playing an instrument with which I was not familiar, called the harpejji. Googling found the maker's site, which included about three dozen song snippets played on the instrument. Here's one of them:
Don't know if this'll catch on, but would love to see what its potential would be in the hands of a Joe Walsh, Jimmy Page, or Lindsey Buckingham.
Or maybe even Roy Clark...
