    Every single time I listen to Knopfler, I'm amazed, and:

    90% inspired
    10% want to throw all my gear on a pile and light it on fire

      huge Mark K.. fan.. but i think is solo suff is just about as good as any Dire Strait tune.. although a bit more mature.. less flashy.. its very good..
      really liking Sailing to Phili, and Wag The Dog right now...



      talk about i guy who can control his tones.. such subtle playing is rare...

      GO MARK!!

          Exactly, less flashy but more details and natural control

            One of the three best guitar performances I've ever seen. Incredible player.

                Telegraph Road does it for me. I think I got that right.

                  I've been on a Knopfler kick for a while, including buying tix to see him in a couple of weeks, buying a book discussing Knopfler style, and just sitting there analyzing what he is doing. Incredibly tasteful playing. Very literate lyrics. The whole package really. The reason I ditched the pick years and years ago was because of him. His overall influence on my playing is incalculable.

                    I was going to make an MK appreciation thread a while back, but never got around to it. The man's a legend.

                    Who says you need a pick to shred?!?!

                        Here's an amazing performance of Romeo and Juliet even though it doesn't really display much of Mark's guitar playing

                          So true man. Kill to Get Crimson has some great tarcks, and I've always loved Postcards from Paraguay and Song for Sonny Liston. Knopfler is truly one of the greats, both Dire and solo. Very underrated (by some).

                              What a great guitar player but what was the purpose of narrating and talking over SOS in that first clip. Yeh I know, it's his song and he can play it any way he wants but that was pretty annoying.
