The Fisherman
Leo Kottke
from 6 + 12 String

order:	A chord diagramA augmentedA (2X)
	A chord diagramBB (2X)
	A chord diagramC majorC (2X)
	A chord diagramD MajorD (2X)
	A chord diagramE MajorE (1X)
	A chord diagramA augmentedA (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.
