Guitar Techniques - - Mark Knopfler Learning Zone -

Our first ex­am­ple could be no more Knopfler- es­que, fully re­splen­dent with dou­ble-stops, bends, slides and vi­brato ac­tion. While the har­mony sug­gests B Do­rian (R 2 b3 4 5 6 b7), the melodic ac­tion is de­rived pre­dom­i­nantly from the B blues scale (B D E F F# A) with an additional 9th (C#) in bars 3 and 4. From a tech­ni­cal per­spec­tive fin­ger­style is the way to go; rest the palm on the bass strings and use a com­bi­na­tion of thumb, first and sec­ond fin­gers.
