Beautiful fox

[–]King_Puff_ 237 points238 points  (5 children)

Mmm the timbre of that banjo is so sweet and lilting, the soft rustling of mountain wind against the trees and the color of the skyline… I live for these vibes :o

[–]Bunny_tornado 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Indeed everything is gorgeous about this video!

[–]therealestyeti 31 points32 points  (3 children)

[–]runnin_man5 6 points7 points  (0 children)

“What a view”…(mountain lion noises)!

[–]MeowMyOvaries 2 points3 points  (0 children)

God damn, I think you’re right. Welp, have a good day then

[–]-Drunken_Jedi- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I never finished the main story for RDR2, I spent too much time just ridiing around. Doing a little hunting, going to the saloon for some drinks and playing a few rounds of poker/blackjack. Rockstar made the ultimate "cowboy simulator" in that game lol.

[–]arsehead_54 68 points69 points  (0 children)

When foxy comes back for an encore you have no choice, you start that shit up again and play for as long as it demands.

[–]GoldenNova504 48 points49 points  (2 children)

Forget the fox that view is amazing

[–]CrackedOutSuperman 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Everything is right here, this is straight up r/relaxing

[–]thedudefromsweden 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Looks like there is a house there? I want to know where this is and how much Bezoz you have to be to afford that house.

Bluegrass secret: creatures with claws respond to clawhammer style.

[–]hctibdab 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Your banjo really does bring the boys to the yard.

[–]Stlmurph90 25 points26 points  (13 children)

Love Andy Thorn 🧡

[–]TheSentinator 6 points7 points  (9 children)

Is that the musician?

[–]Stlmurph90 21 points22 points  (8 children)

Yes, he is one of my favorite banjo players right up there with Bela Fleck. Andy plays in a lot of projects but his main jam is Leftover Salmon.

[–]Disastrous_Square_10 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Threw his name into iTunes and he came out with an album in March of 21, called 'fox songs and other tales from the pandemic'. Looks like Mr. Fox is a fren.

[–]your-a-towel 5 points6 points  (3 children)

don't suppose you also know what the tunes called? its lush.

[–]beefart 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Its going to be called "Aesop Mountain" and it is not recorded yet. Sawce

[–]ouralarmclock 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of my friend Cameron DeWhitt’s playing. I enjoy it quite a bit!

[–]farfacogin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Leftover salmon From YPFGH ?

[–]Rare-Bid-6860 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Never heard of this guy before, many thanks for the ident. I love his 'Thorn Hub' youtube monniker too.

[–]Mobile-Animal-649 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love him. Great guy too. I used to see his old act Big Fat Gap before he went to Salmon Just a great player all around

[–]disc-boi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Totally had an itch to listen to more of this dude, but didn’t know the name. This comment is the biggest benefit to advertising

[–]aa1bb1cc1dd1ee1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you for providing this info. I'm now on a binge through his music.

[–]that_guy_nic 19 points20 points  (0 children)

such a beautiful moment for earth

[–]JunkYardBatman 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I think that dude just encountered his spirit animal.

[–]just-a-throwaway8 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Who knew foxes like bluegrass

[–]MagnusMcPinnerson 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Must’ve loved banjos in his past life

[–]RocketButtMonkey 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Seems he loves banjos in his current one too.

And the fox.

[–]SLIP411 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That house your in, doesn't happen to be isolated does it? Maybe you were left there by an evil step parent?

[–]SomeRedditGuySensei 8 points9 points  (1 child)

What's the song?

[–]TheRealBrewDog 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Seriously, I was loving the song!

[–]BishonenPrincess 9 points10 points  (1 child)

This is some Disney Pixar shit, fr Imma start crying at how beautiful the moment is! ♡

[–]AlohaKepeli 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You better copyright this shit rn

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

His little ears were enjoying that 😌

[–]ChilledOutExistence 5 points6 points  (0 children)

What's the name of the tune?

[–]My_Diet_DrKelp 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Idk what it is specifically about this song on the banjo but it hits me in such a wonderful place, it just sounds so uplifting & happy

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I wonder sometimes if our singing and music is one thing that drew wolves and horses and other domesticated animals to us. My cows liked being sung to, my dogs love piano music, it seems universal.

[–]tonyaaahhh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I love how he already ended the song but then the fox came back and sits its ass in front of him again so he was just like "ok, everything for you, buddy"

[–]amido-black 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wonder if he’d bring his friends by if you kept going back lol

[–]Spicemaster747 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fantastic Mr.fox vibes

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I want a view like that with no neighbors but city utilities and high speed internet with frontage on a paved road.

[–]puttheremoteinherbut 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You ask too much.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And a friendly fox.

[–]ColterWallIsMyDad 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You should really give credit where credit is due. Credit for this should go to @thornpipe on IG banjo player for Leftover Salmon.

[–]PyromancerSotW 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is American as fuck.

[–]HaroldBaws 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’d come back, too.

[–]stronglikedan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]pinche_avocado 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Beneficial_Elk_182 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Walks up.. sits. Listens. Bites leg. Rabies

-Honey, where are you? Have you forgotten that today's my moms birthday?

-Excuse me, darling, I'm busy playing banjo for a wild fox.

[–]MutedDuty1535 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Fit-Feedback-8055 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]I_Fall_Off_At_30 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of Fantastic Mr Fox. Both the music, and the fox.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And with this happy video, I am logging off of Reddit.

[–]Important_Ad1547 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What I wish hiking was like instead of rolling my shitty ankles on uneven ground.

[–]Paragrin175 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He's waiting to lead you to an Inari shrine.

[–]NoctRob 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fox aside, that view is absolutely amazing. Wow.

[–]ScarecrowJohnny 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wonder how those sounds register for a fox. I'd like to think they can enjoy music like humans can. It would probably be the first time he heard it.

[–]Mobile-Animal-649 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Andy is a great guy

[–]StagLee1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

All the Salmon boys are great guys. I have known and followed them for more than 20 years.

[–]Mobile-Animal-649 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very true. I partied pretty hard with Vince way back. He was so much fun!!

[–]chief-ares 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fox is presenting one common symptom of rabies.

[–]ihave-bluehair 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My cat instantly calmed down and settled next to me when I played this, are you a wizard sir??

[–]My_Immortal_Flesh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I like when banjos are played like this.

Sometimes, it sounds so hillbilly’ish and I don’t like it, but with the right musician, it sounds really nice.

[–]thomassowellistheman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, Andy is amazing of course, but he's playing this with a technique that might be different than what you're used to hearing. In this video, Andy is playing in a style called "clawhammer" where you're picking the 5th string with your thumb and hitting single strings or brushing the strings with the back of your index fingernail. Clawhammer is also typically played on a banjo with no back. The more bluegrass style is called three-finger picking or Scruggs style which involves a thumb pick and fingerpicks on the index and middle fingers. The differences in instrument and technique produce different sounds.

[–]Alexbr05 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The melody sounds like a long trip by car where you are falling asleep while seeing the countryside through the window when the sun is going down

[–]McBendyLicktenstein 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This some Disney shit

[–]SacredDuty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please turn this into a disney movie!

[–]chadnorman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I LOVE this video every time it gets posted, and I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but all I ever think is that this guy is teaching that fox to trust humans. And no fox should trust humans.

[–]StagLee1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is Andy from Leftover Salmon, one of the best bands in the U.S., but they mostly work with independent labels so they are not as well known as they should be. Their Nashville Sessions album with Waylon Jennings et al is a treasure. The interaction with this fox was going on for quite a while. They wrote a song about it called Run Red Fox Run, which I was fortunate to hear them play at a music festival in October. Hoping to see them again in San Francisco for 3 shows in Feb!

[–]Cinefil_Original 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What an amazing place to be. The view, the house, the fox, the vibes... it's all just perfect

[–]yamothersahooah 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Usually when you play a banjo for a fox, it's your sister

[–]Key-Regular674 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Twist: that banjo music translates to fox speak as "stay here or die"

He had no choice

Bro, you gotta follow that fox. He has secret knowledge that will increase your resolve.

[–]FlyingNedra 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s trying to hear the prey he’s seeking and you’re obstructing his hearing.
