I'm looking an album consisting entirely of 12-string guitar. No vocals - just amazing guitar music.

Does such a beast exist? Any suggestions?

I'm sure something does. Leadbelly's recordings were almost all 12 string, though there maybe a 6 string in the mix occasionally. His Library of Congress Recordings caught him at his peak. This is one of my favorite sides in the series.


Leo Kottke's Takoma release, 6 & 12 string guitar is great stuff. Consisting of demo recordings he sent to John Fahey when he was first starting out.

EDIT.... Leadbelly is guitar and vocal ... This Leo Kottke album, his first, is all instrumental.

Thanks, Jimmy. I'm very familiar with Kottke's "armadillo album." It's terrific!
