                    AWESOME!


                    Man - I love, but hate that solo. The entire song is nothing but fills, riffs, and stream of consciousness playing from Knopfler. Never had the patience to learn that!!!!

                    Bravo!

                      Thanks!! And dude I KNOW right! Learning the riffs and fills in that song is a whole experience in itself. It's like zooming in on every little note choice of Knopfler, given a very simple key and scale. The hope is that it'd help me play more melodically... haha

                        Very, VERY good playing! I always have wanted to learn all those little licks, but have always known it would just frustrate the hell out of me. Good job!

                          Actually I'm not feeling the solo here so much. I think your playing is technically very good. But what's missing is some muscle/aggression. Perhaps what I'm hearing is that your amp isn't "popping" enough or something. It sounds too safe/clean. But that's not a big problem to overcome. Like I said your playing is technically very good.

                            I hear you there. But I still maintain the major feat is learning the damn thing! Minor issues to address once you have it down. Well, maybe not minor, MK is pretty damn nuanced on the string English and dynamics there....still.

                              Thanks for the constructive feedback! I do agree with you on that one! I'm not usually much of a finger picker so I do notice that I don't quite make the strings pop/cry/sing the same way Mark could. I would also say that the subtle vibratos and micro bends that Mark throws in are a huge part of how he makes every note speak with weight. Back to practicing!
