Drainin’ da Swamp

Drainin’ da Swamp by: The Bilge Rats

This short selection was created with a “Country Swamp” feel. When Ronnie wrote the song to be played on his acoustic guitar, he decided to try using a “Banjo Style” finger plucking technique which certainly gave the piece it’s “Swampy” attributes. In keeping with that sound, I decided to create a bass line that fed into that style by giving it somewhat of a “Dueling Banjos” kind of sound with the bass playing off the acoustic guitar riffs.

This song was created totally remote of each other with Ronnie in Texas and myself here in Georgia. Files were emailed back and forth with several takes on both the audio and video being made before final production.

Hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed creating and producing this piece!
