Available Space by Leo Kottke LEO KOTTKE - Available Space guitar tab Date: Fri, 26 Jan 2001 21:42:02 -0500 From: "Patrick Schwemmer" <[email protected]> Subject: k/kottke_leo/available_space.tab I've dug out yet another of Giant Jim Jarrell's Lost Leo Tabs. Enjoy. Patrick R. Schwemmer [email protected] Date: Fri, 27 Oct 95 15:07:39 EST From: "JARRELL_JIM" <[email protected]> Dean...... Here's a Kottke tab for OLGA. That's assuming there's available space in the archive. Regards..Jim One of my favorite Jack Nickolson movies is "Going South." A tongue in cheek western comedy, Nickolson plays a good guy trying to be bad to the femme fatale, Mary Steenbergen. So what in the world has all this got to do with a Leo Kottke tune? Well, as the credits roll at the end of the flick, "Available Space" is being played....not by Kottke but by Ry Cooder. In fact, the credits list Cooder and the tune by name. As I recall, "Going South" came out in the late 70ís while Leo released it in 82 on "Guitar Music." Iíll bet even money that its Ry's tune....the flavor of it smacks of his style. The tune is typical of the old country blues sound from the 20 & 30's. Moreover, "Space" has a barrel-house piano sound....I'd call it "stride slide." Note that many of the bass notes are damped with the heel of the right hand. The syncopation is irregular with the low bass notes occasionally falling into a double thumb pattern,ie. two thumb beats in between melody notes. The tune demands a "dirty blues" approach. No problem, because if you're like me, I couldn't play it clean if my life depended on it. "Space" is tough but "do-able." I find that it sounds a lot better late at night after a couple of beers.... Not a tune for mellow Sunday mornings with a cup of coffee. While Leo has to my knowledge only recorded it once, and that was on a 12-string, it can be done on a 6-string. Cooder does it on a 6-string on "Going South" and I've heard Leo play it in concert on a 6-string. The tab is for 12-string so some improvisation is required to pull it out of your 6-string. Two beers help a lot!! "AVAILABLE SPACE" Ry Cooder (I think!)
