Title: Sitting In ... it's been years
Post by: Bart Elliott on October 26, 2017, 07:53 PM
Sat in with a new artist (to me), David Colón, performing at Puckett's Grocery in Leiper's Fork, TN last night. Never heard this original song before ... no rehearsals other than the singer/songwriter turning to me and giving me an idea of the groove he wanted.

I have a love/hate feeling, being put on the spot like this, but that is what sitting in is all about... well, in a non-cover-tune environment.

I recently moved to a new house just north of Nashville, so all of my gear is still inaccessible at this time. All I was able to bring was a cajon and my stickbag which had a Stickball Shaker which I was playing with my foot. I was surprised how well it went ... especially since I've been on a hiatus from playing for a full year.
