Georges Brassens is (was) one of the best french songwriters. If not THE best...Our Bob Dylan, if you get my drift...

I often play his songs when i have the guitar in hand...This is one of them. I'll quickly translate the lyrics...i think it's worth tryin...

Very simple tune with two acoustic guitars, a quasi-reggae bass and a nylon solo. As usual, only loops are drums.

This is my secret garden...

Special thoughts to Brother-Phil, Lafayette-Pat, Archie-Jerome, Didier-Didier and the french Icomp pals..

Thanks a lot everyone...Here's an approx translation...to get the overall feeling :

In my village, ,
I got a bad reputation.
Whatever i do or do not
People think i'm a wacko
I'm not hurting anybody
Following my own sweet way.
But the good people dont like it
When someone's not using their good ol path,
No, good people dont like it
When you're taking another road,
Everyone's talking bad about me,
Except the mute, obviously.

On the National Holiday
I stay in my comfy bed
Miltary Music, goose step dancing
I dont really give a ****
I'm not hurting anybody
When i ignore the wake up call
But the good people dont like it
When someone's not using their good ol path,
No, good people dont like it
When you're taking another road,
Everyone's pointing finger on me
Except the no-armed, obviously.

When i met some getaway unlucky robber,
Chased by some dirty farmer;
I'm not ashamed to say i make him fall
And this farmer land on the ground
I'm not hurting anybody
Giving freedom to the poor apple robber
But the good people dont like it
When someone's not using their good ol path,
No, good people dont like it
When you're taking another road,
Everyone's running after me
Except the amputed legged ones, obviously.

No need to be a fortune teller
To know my promised faith
If they find a good rope
They'll be pulling it round my neck
I'm not hurting anybody
Following the paths that wont lead to Rome
But the good people dont like it
When someone's not using their good ol path,
No, good people dont like it
When you're taking another road,
Everyone will come and see me hanging on this tree
Except the blind, obviously

Il fallait oser toucher au mythe et tu l'as bien fait, changer le style du moustachu mais pas l'esprit.

Tu ne fais de tort a personne, garde la corde pour la guitare, tout le monde sera heureux.

Merci Eric pour la pensée.

Excellent sort of subdued reggae meets jazz vibe (if my ears don't deceive me). The vox are simply awesome. If this was my track, I'd knock 8 db of the total mix and use a parametyric EQ to take a deep narrow slice out of the the acoustic guitar somewhere around 200 hz.

"E mai io scordero' la sposa in bianco
cullava come un bimbo i suoi fiori di campo
ed io per consolarla io con la gola piena
suonavo la mia armonica come un organo da chiesa"
La Marche Nuptiale, traduit par Fabrizio de Andre'.

Brassens c'est un maitre pour moi et pour toutes les chansoniers italienne. Je ne parle pas anglais et dans mes jeunes annees il etait mon Dylan. Voix, guitare, un verre de vin de pays et beaucoup de merveilleuse histoires pour chanter la vie des dernieres et des libres.
Merci, merci beaucoup.

Magnifique ... J'aime Brassens aussi. Ma chanson préférée est "Les copains d'abord". Superbe production et arragement. J'adore la guitar basse dans cette pièce. ça me rappelle un peut le rythme Django.
Superbe

nhpeacenik Listener I hadn't heard of Georges Brassens until Leon Rosselson's new album came out in April. He has a song called "The Ghost of Georges Brassens" that sort of sums up Brassens' philosophy of life. I've since listened to som of his singing. Your instrumentation is different from what he used to do, but wonderfully appropriate. The fact that this is one of Olivia's favorites brought me here... What good fortune!
