Bonanza!..

The minute I discovered U-Tube,I rushed right over and scoured the site for videos of my favorite guitarist.
Sadly,there were scant few to be found.
I wasn't surprised really,because he's not what you'd call a 'pop' artist,and much of his work was performed in the 70's,before video tape recorders were readily accessible to all and sundry.
Still,I'd check every now and then,hoping to find some footage from the occasional PBS concert,or whatever.

Well dont'cha know I was rummaging through some Jimmie Rodgers tunes on U-Tube,when I hit upon a link that took me to a treasure trove of Leo Kottke vids!..Apparently some fan whose name I can't remember right now has uploaded buttloads!

Now don't worry,I'm not gonna play them one after another,because I like to post other bits of melodic esoterica,just to keep things interesting..at least for me.
I'm playing this particular song because it highlights Leo's mastery of the 12 string acoustic,and pays some small homage to another favorite of mine,Doc Watson.

Enjoy!

Sling, you gotta teach me how to do this U-tube stuff okay? It's so neat to watch. A whole new area to have fun with.

I had not heard of him before, so thanks for sharing. He is one talented guy.

Oh Leo... he makes me all weak in the knockers. Er...knees. You know what I meant. Right?

 
At 7:26 PM , Blogger Auld Hat said...

Hmmm...Doc Watson. Have to scan the interwebs for more about him.

I'm posting all of my thought blips in separate comments today.

How lucky are YOU?!

oh my! he's so talented...thanks for alerting me to him...

My stepfather was a big Doc Watson fan (one of his few redeeming qualities) so the song, anyway, is familiar to me.

 
At 6:56 AM , Blogger LostInCO said...

Nice. Never heard of him.

Leo is a pickin' genius- "My Father's Face" is an all time fav- T. Bone Burnett really did showcase the man well..

I digress- thanks buddy! I enjoyed that completely!

Wow he is good. I like him...actually my whole office likes him now cuz I turned it up and made everyone listen.

 
At 12:31 PM , Blogger Lorraine said...

Ok, so remember that conversation we had about picking? And you were all "it's so easy" and I was all "nuh uh". I rest my case.

 
At 4:45 PM , Blogger Sling said...

jan- I am so pleased to be the one to introduce you to him. :)

serena- It really was a treat,wasn't it!
Yer welcome.

CS- Okay..

a)find the U-Tube video you want to post.
b) To the right of the video,you will see a box full of gibberish labeled, 'Embed code'..right click your mouse,and 'copy' that.
3)Now go back to your blog,and click on new post..you know.
d)In the area where you type your post,you will see two tabs at the upper right labeled,'Edit HTML' and 'Compose'..click on Edit HTML.(this is the only way it works)..
Now,right click your mouse again,and 'paste' the code into the posting area..
e)If you click on the 'compose' tab,you should see a red 'x' in the top left corner of the post area...SUCCESS!

You can also click 'Preview' to see the video.
From there you can add text as you please,and the video should appear when you publish.
Let me know if you need more help. :)

mom- You're quite welcome doll.
I'm biased,but he really is the best in the biz.

Hat-tastic- Doc is a fascinating character in many ways...He's blind you know.
..and yes,I feel lucky to witness any of your thought blips.
Ya nut.

Yellowdog G.-This has been a Leo Kottke alert.
If it had been a real emergency,you would have been instructed to pick up a harmonica,and jam. ;)

citizen- It just shows to go ya,everyone has some redeeming quality!..except for certain incumbent administrations,which shall remain nameless.

lostinco- Well now you have,so there's just no excuse. :O

doralong- I can't help but notice that all my friends of the southern persuasion have heard of Leo.
This pleases me. :)

Sage- See!..southern California!

lorraine- What ever do you mean?
There's only 12 strings,and he has 10 fingers,and,..and,..Crap!
I stand corrected.

 
At 8:05 PM , Blogger booda baby said...

Am kind of surprised how many people haven't heard of him. (See? I can't decide whether to rave about the always rave-able-about Leo Kottke or spend my precious comment space on being surprised.)

I'm thinking you'd really REAAAAALLLY like Red ... shit. My brain froze. Red ... Sigh. I can't remember.

Can not you help me out? Please?

Redd Volkaert

 
At 8:14 PM , Blogger Sling said...

booda babe- Never heard of Redd Volkaert...
WOO HOO!!
I'm of to become his/her? biggest fan! :)

 
At 8:23 PM , Blogger Sling said...

booda- I'm back!..
that's what I'm talkin' about right there!
Okay,I really am partial to acoustic,but I've listened to enough Chet Atkins to allow electric guitar some respect..Truly.
..and Cindy on the steel guitar?..Beautimous! :)
