Hey, thank [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Steve Martin[/lastfm] for making the banjo cool! There’s a huge Banjo convention in Dearborn this weekend, so here’s a banjo version of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Eagles [/lastfm] ‘Hotel California’.

Banjo players from all over will come out of the woodwork and zero in on Dearborns Doubletree Inn for the 2011 North American International Banjo Convention through Sunday. You can check out 3 concerts featuring 33 acts, as well as jam sessions in the hotel (California?) lobby.

Maybe I’m missing the next big trend, it turns out there are quite a few banjo versions of Rock songs on YouTube, including songs by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Beatles[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Who[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jimi Hendrix[/lastfm], and the one posted here, ‘Hotel California’, by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Eagles[/lastfm]. The guys video is nothing spectacular, but the banjo version of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Eagles[/lastfm] is kind of cool!

I also threw in [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Steve Martin [/lastfm]doing ‘Dueling Banjos’ on The Late Show with David Letterman

    i thought this version of Hotel California was great except it was a little slower than it should have been or at least for what I expect and the ending kinda go cut of , it actually sounded as if the artist didnt know the ending so he/she just improvised. But overall it was good and i would listen to it again.
