If you want to see Steve Martin play some cracking banjo, try
this page. Scroll down about half way and look out for links to two Steve Martin video clips. The one I love is NOT the Foggy Mountain Breakdown - a good straight copy of Earl Scruggs, but the other one, in which he uses some excellent clawhammer to play a medley of tunes. I think I've identified two of them, but I'm not sure about the others - what do you think?
Cheers
Ray

Wow!! That's a wonderful site. Loved watching Martin, he is so good!!

I recognised a couple of the songs...probably the more obvious ones: Loch Lomond and Simple Gifts. Beautifully done.

Thanks a bunch!

Yeah - those were the two I got. I think there are two more that I don't have a glimmer of.

Kat,

I know that Steve used to frequent McCabe's Music Store in the sixties. John McEuen (of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) either worked there or hung out there. They were and still are freinds. In fact, John's brother used to (may still) manage Steve. I'm guessing that it was John who taught Steve the clawhammer stuff.

One of the more magical musical moments that I have experienced was the DVD for the Will the Circle Be Unbroken Vol III. There is a live video clip of John playing Clawhammer accompanied by Earl playing Scruggs style to Soldier's Joy. Beautiful. (At least to a banjo player).
