As part of the requirements for a Master of Music in Musicology and Ethnomusicology at Northern Arizona University I completed my thesis in 2013 titled "The Finger-Style Guitar Music of Leo Kottke: Emerging Methodologies for Research, Transcription, and Pedagogy."
Click here to view Chapter II: "Finger-Style Guitar Tablature and Standard Notation." This concise survey is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather to provide a visual narrative of some of the most important historical developments and innovations in tablature and standard notation for the guitar.
Since 2007 I have been closely involved in the development of the Leo Kottke Archives Project.
The Leo Kottke Archives Project is the first phase of a comprehensive documentation of the career of one of the most influential performers and composers of our time. The data collected will provide the basis for research and analysis of the development of Leo Kottke’s repertoire. In addition, online fingerstyle guitar lessons are supplemented with these historical materials to provide context. We are asking for contributions of set lists and related information and materials. We invite you to participate in this groundbreaking project and look forward to hearing from you.
