LICK2 delivery and note selection
EEThis bluesy example outlines the V7 IV7 I7 sequence in C (G7 F7 C7). From a melodic perspective we’re balancing chord tones with some C minor pentatonic action. The F9 line in bar 3 is a particularly clear example of matching the melodic figure with the underlying harmony. Like so much of Knopfler’s playing, the delivery and note selection are much more important than sheer physical technique.
