Get The Tone

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Blues -

The cru­cial el­e­ment in cre­at­ing the Knopfler tone is the pick­ing hand. For sin­gle notes he com­bines al­ter­nate strokes be­tween the thumb and first fin­ger in a cir­cu­lar mo­tion with ham­mer- ons. Un­like a clas­si­cal player his wrist is col­lapsed, al­low­ing him to palm mute the strings near the bridge. Mark’s gui­tar collection is as beau­ti­ful as it is var­ied, so any good qual­ity elec­tric gui­tar would get the Knopfler nod of ap­proval.
