Ex­am­ple Mark Knopfler Style

Guitar Techniques - - Lesson: Acoustic -

[Bar 17] This sim­ple vari­a­tion on the I– IV–V riff adds a few ex­tra notes but th­ese re­ally bring colour to the riff whether fin­ger­pick­ing it or us­ing it in a stan­dard blues con­text. [Bar 19] Although you could pluck this low G bass note (3rd fret, sixth string) with the thumb, try us­ing the down­ward flick of the sec­ond fin­ger to sound it for an ex­tra per­cus­sive ‘whack.’ [Bar 27] And fi­nally onto the V chord, E still us­ing the same per­cus­sive flick tech­nique with the sec­ond fin­ger’s nail.
