“Easter and the Sargasso Sea” is an acoustic guitar instrumental piece written and performed by Leo Kottke. He recorded and released it on the album Circle ‘Round The Sun in 1970. I bought my copy of the vinyl LP in the Fall of 1971 at a small record store somewhere in central Massachusetts.
For the guitar players out there, Leo is fingerpicking a 12-string guitar tuned to an open-G major tuning. But, like many 12-string players, Leo has his instrument tuned below standard pitch. To be precise, Leo’s guitar is tuned 4 half steps low, actually sounding in E-flat major.
Enjoy and again, Happy Easter!
