Hi, friends !

Been a while since I was able
to do a new surf tune but here
it is:

NEED AWAY TO RIDE (Music and Lyrics by Norman Wibe)

Feelin´it deep inside me, babe
a feelin´I just can´t hide, need away to ride
my heart will burst if I´m not on the sea
surfin´on just you and me
that´s were we wanna be

Won´t you come along now, my little babe
get away from this throng, there´s nothin´wrong
in ”so long”!
and let us pack our gear once again
fly away to our bay where and when
we´re there and then

We´ll be standin´in our shorts on the beach, waxin´our boards
watchin´how the surf´s rollin´ in, t´wards our very shores
goin´about our chores, our chores

Let us get away soon my darlin´babe
surfin´ like a goon from noon until moon
what a boon !
And you´ll be there in the hot sunny haze
with the salty spray in your face
speedin´up the pace

Feelin´it deep inside me, babe
a feelin´I just can´t hide, need away to ride
my heart will burst if I´m not on the sea
surfin´on just you and me
there you´ll see

We´ll be standin´in our shorts on the beach, waxin´our boards
watchin´how the surf´s rollin´ in, t´wards our shores
out on the sea you´ll feel her force
her mighty force
surfin´along you´ll feel her mighty force

STYLE: M_SUNSUP.STY and instros are:

Bass: 1255, Piano: 2105, Drums: RD:s Praise, Worship, Shine
Guitar: 1259, Synthpad 1 : 1267, Synthpad 2 : 1844
Recorded and mixed with Mixcraft 8 Pro, reverb and

This is great! I’m picking up a strong Brian Wilson influence in this one. The harmonies are well executed, and you make it sound so easy. The arrangement, groove, and vocal performance on this are all strong.

Awesome job - thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi, Bud & Janice !:))

From your earlier
comments I knew that
you Bud were a surf aficionado
or that you really owned
a surf board and had been
using it too !!!! this was in fact for
you and for all who like
surf music ! Am a big fan
of Brian and the BB music,
it is so uplifting as it
only can be !!!

Thank you both for your
most kind words making me
blush sitting here alone in the
winter darkness !:))

Brings the whole surf scene into focus for me.

Big thanks to everyone who ever played a song of mine.

Dani, this is far more than excellent. This is quite sensational.

What a great production, what a great arrangement, what a great vocal delivery.

The lyrics, the dynamics, the vibrancy. This song has absolutely everything.

Marvelous. Start to finish.

I always enjoy your layered falsetto vocals and they are so full of energy here. Nice changes between the verses and chorus with the drums bringing up the excitement.
You captured the surf sound again!

You're still hanging ten my friend!

Great surf music. All that is missing is that great guitar of yours!

This is excellent from start to finish, or should I say from wave to shore?

This is a keeper.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
