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.

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.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
