Well this is something new for me! ever since I first heard 'duelling banjos, I've always wanted to try something like this. I've always been a fan of bluegrass and country so it's about time I did something in that area :)

This one actually took longer than it should have... I spent so long makeing so many sequences that just wouldn't go and programming banjo solos is one of the hardest things ever O_o.

Also, I've been trying new ways of getting a clearer and louder sound. Usually when it comes to volume mastering, I tweak it enough so that my crappy speakers can handle the song on full volume.. (Which is why a lot of my songs seem pretty quiet) but I decided against that this time. Be sure to tell me how it sounds on your end!

However, this was really fun to make :3 Enjoy!

This is almost 8 years old and it still slaps.

Not bad at all but its very repetitive.

Hey there dutton, I heard this in guildedguy's Slush Tile Rush (i do not own it!) and it made me wonder: Im a animator, but what if we can put it into a collab format? Great idea! Well, hope you make more great music! - Electric

Dude, Dutton. This is awesome. Mind me using it in my series which has been on its 4 years now? Im going to release it, 6 years from now. Since its a 10 year in the works thing. Can I use it?

- Vincetick! :D

Wow! I've never heard of 'duelling banjos' before, and I must say, what a brilliant discovery. I enjoy those deep, low tones that throw in this swampy, murky feeling, however the constant twang of that banjo sound and the quick feeling certainly feels like a fast, dangerous swamp race. Great job, and I enjoy the intro to the song a lot. About the sound quality, it sounds really great and sharp on my end. (But I'm listening to this on some shotty laptop speakers, so I barely hear the bass! Heh) Overall, I'm glad that you put all you did into this song, no matter how long it took you, because it really paid off.

wow thank you man :3 I'm glad you liked it so much! everything you said was exactly the drive I was going for so thanks for the reassurance!

Also as long as there's no crackling, cluttered noises, distortion or any other horrible noises coming from your speakers when this song plays then that's awesome! means I've successfully got my production value that tiny bit further :3
