GUEST,jonesey BS: Classic Steve Martin Banjo Routine (9) RE: BS: Classic Steve Martin Banjo Routine 11 Apr 02


One night when hosting The Tonight Show he had the Dirt Band on as the musical guest. They did a version of FMB with he and John McCuen on the banjo. Steve and John each had one hand on each other's banjo while doing the solo. I know it's been done alot, but it was the first time 'I'd' ever seen anybody do something like that. Still strikes me funny. Steve refers to John McCuen as 'the best banjo player in the world'. During an interview which ran on cable some time ago Steve was explaining the difference between 'Scruggs Style' and 'frailing'. He frailed 'Ducks in the Pond' (I think)for about 2 mins and it was amazing. Hope he releases more serious recordings in the future
