GUEST,Ole Bull Songs in movies. Wrong key joke? (49) RE: Songs in movies. Wrong key joke? 06 Dec 05

So Mudcatters, I see, can be authorities on keys, pitch and strum. Are there any music historians who get annoyed (like me) with musical anachronisms? There are Plenty!

Scruggs stlye banjo to accompany Civil War films sounds to me like Jimmy Hendricks backing up a DooWop band.

The worst is when Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee play in the background of Scorcese's Gangs of New York. Missed the mark only about 100 years.
