First song I've written on the banjo, and hopefully not the last. Coming up with a name for it was harder than writing it. Writing it was one of those times where you don't sit down and intend to write a song. You just start playing, and realize that you are writing a song, and it actually sounds half decent. I recorded the "A' part on my phone that night, and came home and wrote a "B" part the next day. I named it Sitting by the Riverside, because it's one of my favorite things to do when visiting the mountains. Particularly, I love to set up a tent next to the Davidson river and camp out for a couple of nights with a nice fire. I'd be honored if you left a comment and let me know what you think about it!

I like this song, it is very enjoyable and relaxing, like sitting by the riverside.

The B part is KILLER, and a perfect complement to the A.
