Hey there guys,
Here are 3 licks in the style of Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, they are all in the key of D minor, mostly using the D minor pentatonic scale. Mark Knoplfer only uses his fingers to pick the strings when playing, this is how he gets his trade mark sound. In these examples I am using pick and fingers (Hybrid Picking) to emulate a similar style of sound, check the tab examples for details on which fingers to use. Good luck, and happy plucking!
Here are TABs for the Licks In The Style of Mark Knopfler Guitar Lesson. Hold on tight for the video lessons coming very soon (you will find it here or by looking at our Youtube Channel.
