Actually for anyone who’s half decent on the guitar it’s quite an easy solo to play, easier if you can read music and have a good memory
The ultimate version.
THis is one of my faves… so great and also a good song to listen to when running… I am such a massive fan of Dire Straits and solo Knopf - he is a freakin’ genius.
Never had the fortune to see them together, but seen MK a few times live - fantastic if you get the chance (and of course he played a lot of Dire Straits too).
And live (old crappy recording tbf):
Got in my head with the Knopf stuff.
Here is another hidden gem with a collab with one of my other favorite singer/song-writers of all time and it is a beautiful little song:
Fucking love the Dire Straits and Knopfler.
I very rarely listen to much music beyond the 90’s these days, bar a couple.
Went into HMV in cribbs causeway the other week and spent £50 on cd’s for the car as it doesn’t have Bluetooth and the quality through the Bluetooth fm transmitter is awful.
I spent about 40 minutes just looking through cd’s, forgotten how much fun that shit was!!!
Just picked up the 50th anniversary vinyl box set of this masterpiece…
Not had the chance to fully unbox it yet, but very excited.
Nice. Would like to hear your reviews once you’re done unboxing it.
That is exactly the right word to describe this album.
