Wrote this tongue in cheek truck driving song middle of last year.
Never really thought it was up to scratch so never posted it here.
Just uploaded a youtube vid so I thought I would finally post it here.
Sorry I cant find the original file details.
All comments welcome.

Hi Rob,

Very catchy song. The groove, the music and the arrangement are excellent. As always, your performance is terrific. Is it possible to post the lyrics? I couldn't quite catch all the words.

Nice trip through Queensland along the Sunshine Highway!!

All the best,
Noel

Nice Tennessee Three sound on that, Rob. Don't remember anyone else ever doing that...

You're driving on the wrong side of the road...

My father in law was a truck driver. I remember he said how hard was that job.
The video is well done. The song is lovely, a little bit of Jerry Lee Lewis for me.

Hi Noel.
lad you liked the song. You are spot on about the location.

Her are the lyrics for you.

Dont wake me up Im driving.

Im driving late with an overload my are heavy and start to close Im driving hard to get back home to you.
I push the needle into the red three long days since I rest my head.
I dont beleive the things I do for you.

Those beaming lights hurt eyes Im working hard neath midnight skies.
If you asked me know I wouldnt know my name.

Im pushing hard this old road train through the sleet the mud the snow and rain.
You know theres nothing else I know to do.

Please dont wake me up im driving driving hard to back home to you.
No Please dont wake me up Im driving doubling all the gears to get me through.

A rear wheel is flogging tread the oil light is burning red the trailor lights keep turning off and on.
My log books seven days behind monies low from traffic fines.
Im sure keen to get back home to you.

Now the traffic started moving slow the diesel fuel is running low.
Get out my way or else Im coming through.
Your the one thing on my mind and Im running behind time.
Nothing else will stop me getting through.

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

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® 2020 Portuguese for Windows is Here!

Existem mais de 50 novos recursos no Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Existem aprimoramentos no RealTracks (RealTracks vocais com som mais suave, RealTracks Engrossados, Substitutos de RealTracks e MultiFrases). A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

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!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Learn more about this patch and download it here.

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!

Like the latest post from Tangmo:

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!

Thanks Tangmo!
