Trivia: Near the start, Llewyn looks at the back of his album made with Mike Timlin. The biographical information below Mike, however, talks about Dave Van Ronk, the folk singer about whom the movie is loosely based. (00:06:48)
Factual error: In any scene where Llewyn is using a capo on his guitar, the capo he is using is a Shubb capo. They are excellent and he probably would have used one, save for the fact they were not invented until 1980, around eighteen years after the film takes place. It might be a Hamilton spring, but even they weren't around until later in the 60s.
