A song about a young man working on a tunnel boring machine and dreaming of his holidays at the beach.

https://soundcloud.com/tuigorge/girls-on-call-1

RD Blues rock funky 16th's
Bass - RT572 Elect Blues
Bass - Me - Pedulla 5 string
Guitar - RT 1305 Celtic drones only.

Slightly Gothic.

Hi RichMac,

Very inventive concept! This is the only song I've heard about working on a tunnelling machine. I enjoyed the listen. Balance, choice of instruments and presentation worked for me.

Regards,
Noel

+1 to what Noel said.

Very clever RichMac. You painted a very vivid song picture of him working hard and dreaming to get through it.

RichMac,

Your best! Enjoyable. Interesting. Unique. Quite listenable.

Well written, too. I'd call this RichMac-Rap. Do some more!

Nice job on the bass line...

Rich Mac,

That was different to the usual fare on here, brilliant!
And it sounds like you worked on such a machine, with the heart felt cry of needing a beer!!
As Floyd, I liked the bass line also.

A good one.

Yep... certainly not your "average run of the mill" holiday song..... but hey....

Good job on the challenge. Mix sounded good.

Hi RichMac,

really no average holiday song.
Unusual to pan the bass left.
It's something special.

Many thanks for the fabulous comments. I feel quite blown away.

I worked underground as a shift electrician on the boring machine in the Kaimai tunnel in NZ (years ago). The rock face was 2 and a half kilometers from the tunnel entrance which was uphill with a lot of water running towards the machine. We did lose the power and flood the machine twice. And lost the air often.
There was a cave in where 4 men lost their lives. I wasn't there then but will never forget my time underground.

Richard

Sorry I missed this one. Super cool. Applachian music in the US is packed with coal mining songs. Really neat to hear this more modern version on the theme. Nice all the way around!

RichMac, This almost got by me also and I am so glad it didn't. Very unique and you kept my attention throughout. One of a kind subject matter and one of a kind vocal

delivery. Thanks for sharing, I really liked it. Tom

So glad you enjoyed it Janice and Bud
Ahh yes! Wish I didn't miss so many songs. They come and go so fast.

Thanks Tom I hope to do more bluegrass funk (bluefunk?) with talking blues type vocals.

Richard
