Mark knopfler Style part 1 TRACK 4
Mark Knopfler is one of the best known, exclusively fingerstyle electric guitar players and we have devoted two examples to him. The first focuses on Mark’s early Dire Straits lead style, which combined a snappy clean tone and use of the thumb and first two fingers. Position your picking hand thumb so it juts across, adjacent to the strings with the two fingers curled up and ready. Anchoring the remaining two fingers on the pickguard gives a point of reference for the hand and helps with control. All picking directions have been notated so use them and play the example through slowly a few times.
