Trying to Make a Fool of Me - The Delfonics w/ Bobby Eli

Bobby Eli's Electric Sitar part from the Delfonics "Trying to Make a Fool of Me" from their self titled 1970 record, written by Thom Bell and William Hart.

Most of the time when you're making a record it's not about playing the flashiest lick or hippest changes. Sometimes you need to just dial in a weirdo tone, find your spot, and play the simple thing. Bobby Eli did this so well on the Delfonics records.
