Hi there!

Oh man, how this song has many tasty licks.

I made this cover from scratch. I used AmpliTube Fender for guitars and AmpegSVX for bass. I find it hard to get a decent clean tone from those amp modeling software, it´s easier with rock and metal sounds. I used Superior Drummer 2.0 for the drums.

Listen, and feel free to comment. smile.gif

VERY nicely done man! smile.gif Did you write all parts in MIDI and assign the instruments? I would assume with the time spent on this, you had to play the guitar parts tongue.gif ...And again, nicely done!

Gilmore, you nailed this!!
Fantastic cover man!

Perfect smile.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks guys.

I played everything on this with real instruments of course, the guitars and bass. wink.gif

But about the drums, I imported a midi file from GP5. I didn´t write the midi notes myself, but I had to edit them alot, because it didn´t sound right, so I spent few hours doing that. I had to make up an ending because the original file just got cut off somwhere at the end. Then I just assigned Superior Drummer to play it. I´m not good at mixing drumst, but I did my best. The drums sound a little wilder than on the record, but they sound closer to the live version of the song.

I played the lead guitar in fingerstyle, ala Knophler, it´s the only way to get it right. smile.gif

Very nice take. The sound of the strat is so identical to Knopfler, and the fingerpicking makes it hard to tell the difference between you and the man himself smile.gif Well done!!!

I thought he used some sort of pick and left his extra fingers open for hybrid picking.

No he usually don´t use a pick, but he uses it sometimes when he plays rythm parts. I saw a video where he is explaining his picking style, and he uses the thumb for all the bass notes and sometimes even on the treble strings. That´s breaking the rules as he calls it, because that is not the usual way to pick, the thumb should not be used on the treble strings, but he likes to bend the rules. smile.gif

And thanks for the comments all, very kind. smile.gif

Congratulations! It's quite an effort to nail down this song, but it's very rewarding (for me it took 4 months tongue.gif )

One or another lick comes a little offtime, but all in all you did really a great job.

I like your tone, but it seems to me use middle+bridge to play it right? I prefer playing it with neck+middle, but that´s a matter of taste.

Once again, congrats! wink.gif

Thanks Gus.

You are right I use middle+bridge pickups, I think it sounds the best, I first recorded the solos with nec+middle, but it didn´t sound smooth enough for me so I recorded again using middle+bridge. I´m not sure what position Knophler uses on the recording, mabye he switches between potitions. Doesn´t really matter though, it all sounds good, just different for each player. smile.gif

Hey man! Colour me impressed, this is a spot on recording and you nailed that Knopfler sound beautifully. Drum editing always takes time. All round you've done a great job here and the time you've spent and the dedication to detail all shows. Marvellous work!
