Leo Kottke 6 And 12 String T-Shirt


Released in 1969 album '6 And 12 String Guitar' is a landmark in acoustic fingerstyle guitar. Kottke deftly weaves his way through a variety of genres, from folk and blues to classical and jazz.

One of the most striking things about '6 And 12 String Guitar' is Kottke's use of tunings. He often uses unconventional tunings, such as open D and open G, which give his playing a unique sound. This is evident on tracks like "The Last of the Arkansas Greyhounds" and "The Sailor's Grave on the Prairie," which both feature haunting melodies played in open D tuning.

Kottke's playing is also notable for its technical virtuosity. He is able to play incredibly fast and complex passages and he often incorporates elements of jazz and classical music into his playing. This is evident on tracks like "Vaseline Machine Gun" (great title!)and "The Fisherman," which both feature dazzling displays.

The album was recorded in a single session, and it has a very live feel to it. You can hear the audience clapping and cheering in the background on some of the tracks. It was released on John Fahey's Takoma label, which was a major player in the early American folk scene.

Hugely influential and at 77 still out there playing, this, his debut album, still resonates as work of quiet genius today.

Returns & Exchanges

This isn't a problem. If you need to change size or colour or design, or just fancy a refund, its all cool. I can sort all of this out for you. 

When returning an item it must arrive with us in it’s original condition. Wearing it down the pub on a Friday night out, getting it covered in Guinness and setting light to it via a badly rolled reefer, then returning it on Monday, is understandable, but not allowed by the karma pixies who govern our lives. And we don't want to upset the karma pixies now, do we? 

If your item is in any way faulty then please contact me immediately, send a photo of the issue and I will get a replacement organised. You won't have to send it back to us. For clarity, the concept of faulty does not include stains from a lamb dhansak you have spilled down yourself after consuming 8 pints of lager.  

Before making a return, please email me djteesaway@hotmail.com with your order number, and what you want to happen - a refund, or a different size/colour/design. I can then make it happen because I am all powerful, can change my clothes in a phone box and can fire spider webs from places I didn't know I even had. Possibly.

You will always be dealing with me, Johnny, because DJTees is so small and niche that I do all admin. Don't worry, I don't bite, or at least not unless you are a sausage. I do bite sausages.

If you'd love a t-shirt but are totally skint, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do.  


 We print everything to order and don't hold any stock of anything. That would be mad. Almost all orders are printed within 2 or 3 working days (this doesn't include weekends and public holidays), occasionally as long as 4 days if we have run out of a size or colour t-shirt and stock is delayed in arriving.
