Leo Kottke

Description
It's an hommage to the great 12 string fingerpicking american guitarist Leo Kottke.
All I know about 12 string fingerpicking, I owe it to him.
It looks like one of his composing : it begins slowly, gentle, and accelerate to end like a fool !
Thnaks Leo for all you gave me.

Thank you, Feter.
Leo Kottke is a source of inspiration for me since my 15yo... and it's quite a long time ago ;-)
When I bought my 12 string Lowden in England, the guy who sold it to me didn't want to sell it to someone who doesn't know how to play it... I played "Creeple Creek"... He just said "OK !"

This is incredible! I love Leo Kottke and you have captured his style SO well with this piece! Excellent performance - the sound is full and resonant. I really love the way the piece evolves into the accelerated ending. Great job!

Great tribute -
Lovely, spacious opening. I really like the way you build that tempo. The last chord on harmonics is also very 'right'. The last time I heard Leo Kottke in concert, he spent lots more time telling stories than playing the guitar. But when he was playing, everyone was leaning forward in our seats, really involved in the music. You do the same thing here, drawing me into your beautiful tone, and then showing off some excellent finger-picking.

This is excellent
Lovely sound from the guitar, and exquisite playing. I love the dynamics, and the change from the slower, more meditative section to the frenzied later part. Great tribute to a fine guitarist - from a fine guitarist. Nicely done. Peace.

Thanks!
Don't get to hear much 12 stringers here. Thanks for posting. I had the privilege of seeing Mr. Kottke in concert a few years back. He's the guy who sold me on Taylor guitars. Thanks for this homage!
