  5. Не синхронизирани
    [STUDS] as far as an FMT audience is concerned
  6. Не синхронизирани
    I think it's almost needless to tell you
  7. Не синхронизирани
    who's banjo that is you're listening to
  8. Не синхронизирани
    it's the banjo of the number one
  9. Не синхронизирани
    five-string banjo picker in the country -
  10. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE] Oh, go on!
  11. Не синхронизирани
    [STUDS] - as far as we're concerned
  12. Не синхронизирани
    the voice you recognize I imagine immediately
  13. Не синхронизирани
    that's Pete Seeger
  14. Не синхронизирани
    sitting up with us here
  15. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE] You've got to quit being a disc
  16. Не синхронизирани
    jockey for a change...I am not a number one banjo picker
  17. Не синхронизирани
    in the first place, in any kind of art you can't say
  18. Не синхронизирани
    the number one...you can't say, how can you say so-and-so is the best pianist
  19. Не синхронизирани
    in the world? He might be best to somebody, he might be worst
  20. Не синхронизирани
    to somebody else {STUDS] Pete, I think it's this commercial life I'm leading [PETE] ...and as far as banjo
  21. Не синхронизирани
    picking goes, there's a fellow down in West Virginnia who can just play
  22. Не синхронизирани
    rings around me named Earl Scruggs. He's the king of the banjo pickers
  23. Не синхронизирани
    as far as I'm concerned. [STUDS] It's about three years ago, Pete you mentioned the name of Earl Scruggs
  24. Не синхронизирани
    you remember the record, uh, the tune that he played [PETE] Foggy mountain
  25. Не синхронизирани
    Breakdown [SUDS] How'd that go? [PETE] He plays a very syncopated kinda style
  26. Не синхронизирани
    [fast banjo picking music]
  27. Не синхронизирани
    [STUDS] About how many songs would you say, this is just for statistical purposes, about how many songs [PETE] oh!
  28. Не синхронизирани
    [STUDS] ...would you say you know? [PETE] I don't know, well, when I was in the Army, a fellow and I once sat down
  29. Не синхронизирани
    and we wrote down all the songs that I knew . It was about
  30. Не синхронизирани
    three or four hundred, but some of those I didn't know all the way through, and they included a lot
  31. Не синхронизирани
    of popular songs and hymns and so on
  32. Не синхронизирани
    Army songs, and I've learned maybe a couple hundred since then, but I forgot
  33. Не синхронизирани
    forgotten a couple of hundred too, so I don't know. [STUDS] Well those you do know and those
  34. Не синхронизирани
    you remember are enough to fill a number of books and albums, and on that subject
  35. Не синхронизирани
    Pete, for the FMT audience, those who may be aware of it
  36. Не синхронизирани
    uh, not the last time Pete was with us, but the time before that,Pete and Big Bill were guests of the Almanac
  37. Не синхронизирани
    and Folkways got pretty excited about that session and that's gonna come out as an album shortly. You know anything about that Pete?
  38. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE]Yeah, the drndest things come out on records these days, you buy this record and all you'll hear is Studs and
  39. Не синхронизирани
    me and Big Bill talkin, and talkin and we play a tune [STUDS] -laughs-
  40. Не синхронизирани
    and we interrupt the tune to talk some more
  41. Не синхронизирани
    play a contrasting type of tune
  42. Не синхронизирани
    [STUDS]Well what sort of
  43. Не синхронизирани
    tune will you say hits you now, by the way Pete, it was about two weeks ago Dick Bennet was here in this very studio [PETE] Hey! [STUDS] we did the - we used the same technique
  44. Не синхронизирани
    a stetfoot, sitting together, and uh,
  45. Не синхронизирани
    remember we asked Dick and he asked to be remembered to you, of course
  46. Не синхронизирани
    pretty fondly, Dick, play whatever comes to your mind while you're sitting here and it worked out pretty well
  47. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE] Well, let me think (tuning banjo strings)
  48. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE]I was down in southern Louisiana last onth
  49. Не синхронизирани
    in a part of the country where manynpeople still speak French the descendents
  50. Не синхронизирани
    of the 4000 French-Canadians
  51. Не синхронизирани
    who were shipped down there two hundred years agoby the English [STUDS] The Acadiens?
  52. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE] Maybe you remember, Longfellow's [STUDS]"Evangeline" [PETE That's right
  53. Не синхронизирани
    well I was in the town where she's buried, of course, her real name was Emmaline
  54. Не синхронизирани
    uh, and Longfellow, I think he changed her name when he wrote the story
  55. Не синхронизирани
    about her, but (banjo) I was swapping
  56. Не синхронизирани
    songs down there, and doggone if I didn't find they knew a lot of the same songs I knew
  57. Не синхронизирани
    but with different words! For example, they had one that
  58. Не синхронизирани
    went something like this. You know, they speaka funny variety of french, this is not Parisienne
  59. Не синхронизирани
    French (sings, in Cajun French)
  60. Не синхронизирани
    [PETE] You see it's a girl, she says "Where have you been?
  61. Не синхронизирани
    my good husband, where have you been my good old man, you're the best drinker
  62. Не синхронизирани
    in the country [STUDS] laughs [PETE] and he answers, I'm gonna
  63. Не синхронизирани
    go out to get drunk" It goes on for about ten verses. Well you know
  64. Не синхронизирани
    I recognized that melody, and when I heard the words it reminded me I heard
