In the study notes for the transcription of “Egg Tooth” that we have published, I presented a chronology of the evolution of the form and, in the case of “Egg Tooth,” it is a long and winding road. The transcription itself represents how Kottke was performing “Egg Tooth” in the late 1970s.
But we often transcribe multiple performances and recordings of a particular composition as part of the process. Here is the beautiful introduction to “Egg Tooth” from his 1972 Capital LP, Leo Kottke/My Feet Are Smiling. This is a free download. See the first system below, and download the full transcription of the introduction at the bottom of the page.
