Description
I was rummaging through some uncompleted projects looking for something to practice guitar parts on and ran across this early collab I did with Emily Rohm and Steve Cole. I was never happy with the original outcome, on my behalf of course. I had sent the song to Emily who did an outstanding job laying down the vocals even though the tempo was a little advanced and in effect made it almost a tongue twister. Steve's bass part is unchanged and matches the song's new drum track. The rest is a mirage of guitar parts, a whole new approach that I feel really change the mood of the song.

I haven't seen Steve or Emily in a while, like a lot of musicians here on Macjams, they come and go. Emily was the first member to fav me.

Thanks for taking the time out of your day and I hope you enjoy the listen.

Lyrics
Talk about the weather is it going to rain or shine
Could it be another dark Wet lonely night?

Still I hold this feeling and it makes me feel so low
Shouldn't it be leaving I just want it to go...

Since you left I feel emptiness
Makes me mad and I don't quite understand...

I can't lick this feeling haven't found another one
I just hit the ceiling I'm just coming undone

All my friends who see me think I'll find another one
I think it's deceiving your the one that I love...

Since you left I feel emptiness
Makes me mad and I don't quite understand...

Talk about the weather
Is it going to rain or shine...

Nice
John, good job reclaiming this song from the attic. I like the variety of tones and textures that you create in your "wall of sound." What is that scale you are using on a few of your solos?

I appreciate your comment and encouragement. I'm not sure what scale it is, just something I end up falling into.

I have an old one

I downloaded this song from somewhere before, John.

This approach and take is really sweet; you're right, it really has a fresh new FEEL to it.

Love it. Your guitar work just past 0:45 and 1:30 really sails. A little Eric Johnsonish but with the FEEL sensibilities. Great chord changes. Emily and Steve deliver, and the drums sound great. Good composition.

Sounds like two great MJers that I missed out on. Great tune. Cool pop feel mixed with just enough rock edge. I love you're playing on this! There's a great Hendrix vibe in your soloing. Killer rhythm playing and tones too.

I'll take a comparison like that anytime. A lot of people have come and gone through the years. Macjams still active all these years and it's neat to hear the progress of those who stick around.

This has turned out well, John. Emily has a beautiful tone to her voice. Rich bass line. Excellent sound to the guitars - and the lines you're playing are great. I seem to be getting a bit of distortion in the mix through my headphones? That aside, this is an excellent song and performance!
FEEL said 1586 days ago (January 20th, 2013)
Heard some distortion as well
I thought it might have been a connection and it seemed to go away. Then there's the over saturated guitars. Thanks for your input, always welcome.

Like the almost Eastern modal lead thing...
And the chimey versus crunch rhythm guitars... The leads remind me a little of a cross between Yardbirds era Jeff Beck and West Coast psychedelia...

The bass is steady but melodic...

And Emily is a deceptively adroit vocalist... She phrases very naturally and doesn't feel this need to show off her considerable chops in every bar...She lets a song sing itself, wherever that goes, she trusts the song, and that's a great quality in a singer...

Thanks for the comparison and some big shoes I would have to fill as well. I agree it does sound a bit eastern, more experimental on my part. Steve was one of those reliable bass players who was always game to participate on a collab. I always think of Emily as a entertainer, someone with true talent and able to perform if needed in a live situation. She did make some minor changes to the phrasing to improve this song.

This tune has a cool 70's rock vibe, and your soloing actually reminds me a bit of Brian May and some of his early work. Nice and hummable, and a good production make this an enjoyable listen - thanks!

thanks for listening. I appreciate the kind comments and now Brian May... wow... I youtube'd and listened to some of his stuff and I think you might be on to something.... Maybe I should buy one of his guitars and practice A LOT.
