Thread Name: Happy Birthday - A Leo Kottke Concert
Subject: RE: Happy Birthday - A Leo Kottke Concert
I envy you seeing Leo Kottke for the first time. I can remember the first time I saw him (in 1974) and it was just a mind-blowing experience.
I am not sure how informative the experience will be , however, in terms of picking up playing tips (if that is what you are after). The last time I saw him in concert in New Hampshire, he had altered his right hand position radically, and it was impossible to see what his thumb and fingers were doing. It was really quite weird, his right hand almost appeared to be motionless.
Still, his playing was as great as ever, and his sense of humor was as off-the-wall as ever. You will certainly have a life-enhancing experience.
