Hi guys. This is another one written for a Youtube video. Not listed as yet.
All comments welcome. Rob

Metal mule is an off road vehicle.

Metal Mule

Metal Mule.
Out there in the back woods fresh air is flowing free.
There aint no contradictions and no body bothers me.
I'm driving round, aint no fool to take me down.
Ive been breaking all the rules, driving round my metal mule.

Please don't ask me will I be at work on time.
Forgive my indiscretions and your business I wont mine.
My two feet steady on the ground.
Ive been breaking all the rules, driving round my metal mule.

Chorus
I may be a mountain bouncer and Ive traveled many roads.
Always shun the cities as I go.
If you dont ask me questions then you will never know.
Im out there where the Manzanita grows.

Bridge

Chorus
I may be a mountain bouncer and Ive traveled many roads.
Always shun the cities as I go.
If you dont ask me questions then you will never know.
Im out there where the Manzanita grows.

Ive done a lot of searching but what matters in the end.
I hide a mongst the shadows and to me they are my friends.
You know its true, nothing else I'd rather do.
Ive been breaking all the rules, driving round my metal mule.

So I'll just keep on bouncing from the rivers to the hills.
Ther'l be no one to mind me I'm running on free will.
The bears and trees, Always know where I will be.
I'll be breaking all the rules, driving round my metal mule.
Ive been breaking all the rules, driving round my metal mule.
I'll be breaking all the rules, driving round my metal mule.

Hi Rob,

You're a songwriting engine! It's incredible how many you manage to create while I only write a single song. I'm in awe!

I enjoyed this one. The concept of a 'Metal Mule' appealed. Clever hook!

All the best,
Noel

Hi Robert,


Definitely a catchy toe-tapper!
But this definitely is your best so far, especially the musical arrangement. Cool breaks, and very cool chorus!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
