The Fisherman
Leo Kottke
from 6 + 12 String

order:	A (2X)
	B (2X)
	C (2X)
	D (2X)
	E (1X)
	A (2X)

This song is one of the few Leo Kottke compositions 
which uses an ordinary alternate bass finger-picking 
style.  It is also one of the few that I can wrap my 
head around and get a reasonable transcription of.  

All sections A-D are to be played twice.  Often the 
second run is slightly different from the first.  For 
the differences between the first and second runs that 
are not fully transcribed, I have shown the notes to 
be played in the second run in brackets.
