American Way w/Jeff Cook, fatchance, scofugate & awigze

Description
Here is a song about frustration with living in the American culture when that isn't the way you are at the core. Jeff Cook redid my guitar part in his studio, drums by Scott, the venerable Andy on sax. I played the guitar and keyboards in this song. A rare keyboard part for me.

The slide player was the late George Couts (FatChance) on slide guitar. I dedicate this post to him and all he stood for. He loved this song and really wanted to put slide on it. This was one of the last projects he did. I am just glad to have gotten a chance to work with him. We jammed some blues on Skype one time too, that was a blast.

Super Cool
It's so wonderful to hear Geo again!

Love the lyrics, you always come up with the catchiest chorus & melodies, Charles. Terrific vocals, no surprise there. Guitar, drums & sax, all blend beautifully. Awesome collab fellas!

Good song
good mix, good vocals.

Severely underused sax! I'm almost tempted to say, what's the point of having sax if he's only going to play long notes. The passage from 1:23 to 1:35 was cool, for the rest? *shrug*

I think sometimes subtly
is a good way to go though. Both the sax and slide are used very subtly in this song. I didnt want lots of stuff confusing the intent of the song. It was written to be a bare bones sounding production. Andy has some sax "shredding" on my 2 other songs in the list though.

When ya got a muscle car
it's kinda cool to drive around town just 5 miles under the speed limit.
Thanks for the cool comment Vic, but just gotta say that it could have gone either way. with or without sax, it would be a very cool song. I wanted to make sure that crissew was happy with asking me along. The vocals were key so I wanted to accentuate the care-free sense of the melody that bolstered the meaning. The slide and the vocals was the best things about the song. Glad I got to collaborate with everyone. Was unaware of George before now. He evidently has made a positive impact in this world.

jdholliday said 2401 days ago (October 3rd, 2010)
I was there!
when you wrote this song, man what memories, playing this song at the bar and coffee house at college, always my favorite song of yours, great changes on the lyrics, I feel I was slighted not being asked to do harmonies on this, especially the one I invented! Hah! just kidding! Man that sax is the last thing I ever would have thought of for this song but I have to disagree with Vic, wow it just right! Very tasty, not overdone nice and laid back in the pocket just right imho, Jeff did an incredible job as always, the changes in the chorus were a great call, your voice is spot on really right in the pocket too, nice and relaxed, I know how hard this song is to sing though people might not recognize that, but I've been trying to sing it for 10 years and still can't get it right!
You've written some great songs recently too that are up there with this one, like "Wasted" , "feel this Way", "Not so Kind", "Why do we Pretend", just to name a few, all high potential! So glad you re-visited this song and updated it, kudos my friend!

As my dear friend Geo would have succinctly put it: GREAT MUSICIANSHIP! Top drawer work from everybody on this (and of course, it was wonderful hearing George once again). Beautifully realized from conception to what we are listening to here. Love it! Michael

dantimmermans said 2400 days ago (October 3rd, 2010)
great song
I like the whole tune, a great melody and arrangement. the harmony in the chorus is just right and I like the sparing, subtle use of the instruments, which are all perfectly suited to this song. I like the open chord change-up just before the choruses but the track does lose a lot of energy at these points. also, I really think your commanding voice and pure tone are undermined by the extensive auto-tune work. again, I really don't think you need it, Charles.

excellent vocals - especially on the drop down at the end - WOW!

thanks

gotta lay off the autotune dude - especially at the beginning

I know macjams is anti auto tune
but the rest of the music listening world seems to like it. I like how it sharpens up the melody. Makes the vocal more like a finely tuned instrument. You will be hard pressed to find a modern artist not using it. BTW, I only used it on like 3 words in the first verse that were slightly flat.

autotune
it's just my personal opinion, nothing more. yes, it is used a lot nowadays, i've used it myself in some of my tunes too...

but i wouldn't generalize MJs as being anti-autotune - there's a broad range of opinion on this and other topics as well

Freedom of the iHighway
Great song. Really marvelous sounding opening, compelling, easy going and happy and truly vagabond-alicious. Not sure if the sax fits, cuz in the middle there is almost too much happening and I think the sax is the one track that doesn't feed the souther rock feel and kind of covers the piano, but all the other sounds add to that on the street. Kind of a Jackson Browne feel, and I dig him a ton. Great collab. The lyrics are classic, consider posting them? Thanks for sharing this.

I was worried about having too much going on in this one. With a piano, slide guitar and sax, even when they aren't playing that much individually, it can be a bit much.

When I saw who the players were on this one there was no way to listen immediately (the problem with these new fancy cell-phones), but now that I have time to sit and soak this up, it's just more than awesome! George was one of my most enthusiastic supporters when I first joined Icomps. He tried and tried to do a collab with me, but just ran out of time. You guys did this proud. Every single one of you. God bless!

Got a Steve Miller sort
of vibe going on to these old Brit ears,which is great.Hafta say I don't fully get the sentiment ,perhaps that is cos most folks outside the US look on the "American Way" as something not to be pooh poohed,and some indeed aspire to it.But I suppose it comes down to individuals and their interpretation of how it should be lived......and I suppose to turn it on its head slightly I was sat in central Park one afternoon ,watching a softball game and talking to a chap sat next to me on the bench.Because I did not speak with a plum in my mouth ,or 'cor bloimey Mary Porppins...he would not have it that I was other than Australian....well really (no offense possums)I could not persuade him that I was english. Though quite why anybody these days would claim to be english unless they were is beyond me....have I got a bit off track here...I think so....anyway,look here bloody good song old bean,keep up the good work and regards to the rest of the modern rock beat combo....especially the one sadly deceased.

Anyway, this song is meant to be a little bit sarcastic. About trying to fit the mold of what we are told from childhood that America is all about (making lots of money, buying cool stuff, and looking more successful and prosperous than the next guy) and failing miserably because everyone isn't built that way. Yet oddly I find myself still feeling compelled time and time again to repeat this pattern. I think in many ways our lives and what we want are dictated to us from an early age; and we unconsciously try to live that out.

Nice bit of work, all of you
It was good to hear Geo's slide in there. He was such a giving person and so very talented. Will miss him always.
Love the lyrics and you vocals are just outstanding. As a collab this is about as good a it gets. Congrats to all of you.

Nice one
It's got a great country vibe and the vocals are pure.

Singing folk always sounds great with feeling and expression. I think that's what real American culture is about.

Great song.

Indeed
It is great that I got to collab with him and Jam with him over skype. My project may have been his last one, not sure though. He got really sick right after finishing this part.

Great production
I like everything about this one: the lyrics, the vocal, the guitar playing and the overall production. Love the way you build it into the rich and powerful statement that it becomes - and the focus on the lyrics you get when you return to the simple guitar and vocal. Thanks for sharing it!
