Who he is: Kottke’s a self-taught guitar player turned master, known for his 12-string slide instrumentals, his bend of folk with jazz and blues, and his signature finger-picking style.
Had Kottke been less tenacious: None of that would have happened. A mishap with a firecracker and Navy service left his hearing damaged and painful tendinitis in the ’80s forced him to change the way he played.
Some of his collaborators: Lyle Lovett, Johnny Cash, Fleetwood Mac, and The Byrds
Where to begin: Where Kottke began. His 1969 studio debut, 6- and 12-String Guitar, remains one of his best musical statements, rife with syncopated, polyphonic tunes.
