Lyrics
Man of Straw

While the day's warm, 
you kick away at your straw man
With the wind in your face, 
you wish he would blow away
You fall to your knees 
in the field of your brother
You and your silence, 
you and your man of straw


Sleeping - you and your man of straw

You're sleeping - you and your man of straw


Brown startled eyes 
awake from a chilling breeze
You walk toward the light - 
the light from a house in the distance
And loving arms 
reach out to hold you
You and your silence, 
you and your man of straw


Weeping - you and your man of straw

Yes, you are weeping - you and your man of straw


They think you're crazy, 
they think you're insane -
You and your man of straw
But there's love - 
unconditional love
for you and your man of straw
You're living in a world
 they don't understand
 You and your man of straw
But there's unconditional love 
for you and your man of straw.

Now let me see...
...you can actually sing that middle part while you're doing the fingerpicking/bass line...and still survive?

You Deserve Better...
than Borders gigs. :p

Can't you hook up with a promoter and do some opening act work?

Nice '60s-folk feel tune. The guitar part is reminiscent of a leaned-down version of Dave Mason's "Only You Know and I Know," but your song has its own personality and power.

Thanks Joe. I'm clueless, don't know the right people and I'm a late bloomer.
I'm void of bitterness though. Maybe "It is to be a virtual artist". I've been thinking about that lately.

Very glad you found this place, Miche...
May I offer a rather late welcome to MacJams... This place likes new members, and it's a particular treat when someone brings your high level of talent. You also bring personality and humor, and that's always a good thing. It's great to have you here.

Your skill with your guitar is remarkable, and your soulful, soaring vocal marries to it seamlessly. I am going to enjoy tracking your stay here, and I hope it lasts a good long time. I look forward to enjoying more of your gift of music.

Thanks for bringing your music to us here.

Holy #@%^
Welcome...Welcome...Welcome

What energy you are going to bring to this place (and already have for that matter).

This was a nice brew of percussive guitar strumming, powerful singing with a little hint of Mr. Jareau thrown in, just awesome.

Glad your here for us to hear.

Great
This is brilliant Miche. Your singing and playing are extremely top notch. Are you using a combined pick/fingerpicking style - the guitar sound with percussive tapping is very effective. I hope you up load some more stuff soon.

look at that bastard.
Thanks stranger. Actually it's finger style ( no pick). I describe it as a bastardized flamenco technique. It's what happens when you can't get the traditional style right. When you're left handed you've got to find your own way.

Wow!
I'm blown away by just how many of the fundamentals you've got nailed here. Great percussive energy in the playing, excellent dynamics and those expressive pipes of yours! Not to mention it's a well written and crafted song.

Welcome to Macjams Miche, this place is all the richer for your presence.

Thanks
Thanks Pete. I feel very welcomed here. I've never enjoyed listening to music as much as do since I've been here. Everything being connect to music and well as the people behind it. Sure, I'm into music, but I'm really into people who are in to music. This is a thrilling place (for me).

Wow-
Love your vocal style here. It's so different from the other post I've already listened to - You are really versatile. The guitar is also excellent. So, now I know what 'bastardized flamenco' sounds like, should anybody ask me. Seriously, though, great stuff, dl&f!

Man, I'm glad I decided to troll the chat a bit - otherwise I doubt I'd have found this.

Great playing, terrific vocals and a very good recording.
Honestly, I have nothing not great to say about this.

Fantastic!

Thanks Stranger. It's all done with Logic pro and a Powercore card. As a former (light weight) producer back in the days I use to beat up engineers "No, that's not what I want, could you try...", It's interesting doing it all yourself. What a joyful pain.

I can feel the backbeat of this song all the way to my toes. A typical drummer comment. You must have to wear white socks to play like this!
