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.

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

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
