Original lesson: Mark Knopfler Style Lesson by Muris Varajic

Hi, after almost 7 years I have decided to start playing guitar again and I am very excited to come back to this forum. During my first time on GMC I saw this lesson and absolutely fell in love with it but it was absolutely out of reach in terms of technique. I have now spent the last two days practicing the fast parts and while they are not perfect by any means I think they are at least presentable. With that said I am excited to be on gmc again:)

It's awesome to have you back Hanagnagana - and congrats on your beautiful fingerpicking tone and technique here!

I think you did well - and the only parts that caught my attention where the faster runs. It initially seemed to me as a timing issue - but I think you are just missing a note here and there - and this disrupts the even flow of 16th notes.

The cool thing with this type of Knopfler solo is how he (and Muris) go between the loose & relaxed type of phrasing into super tight and fast 16th notes.

I think you are almost there but you need to show us you are in total control of the fast parts as well.

Looking forward to seeing more of your takes 👊

Hi mate! Welcome back!!

Great job with this lesson! Most of the parts are sounding very well here. I just find small details and sections that can be improved. For example, the first doble string bend is not sounding smooth, and neither reach the right pitch. Then, the other double stop bends are a lot tighter.

The first fast run sounds totally killer, you sound so tight and clean there. Then, the two strings arpeggios (00:27) still need some work, at least based on this take. Maybe you can play them clean and clear but you are not 100% comfortable yet. I would isolate them as daily exercises.

Besides these two things, I think that you can continue polishing slides, vibrato and timing in some licks in order to get the most from this lesson. However, I have to say again that you did a killer job.

Looking forward your next takes!!

Hey there and wellcome back.

It's a beautiful lesson and you did great job i terms of awerage preparation and tone match.

It is a difficult lesson and it's difficulty is hidden more in the way notes are being played, instead of actual speed. My first impression on tone and specific softnes of playing was positive. What I was missing is tone of harder notes. You need to extend your range of tonal skills in your fingers. You can notice Muris has more "slap" in his strong notes. It makes whole his take have more audible contrast between soft and hard playing. Overall it affects dynamics range. To be fair - not all the time...only it the spots it's needed.

You are already familiar with most of things to fix. I will not have any specific complaints. I like the fact you feel what you play...I mean...you have a good sense of music of this kind, to do this lesson some justice. Timing, pitch and hand sync issues will be gone through the time of practise. Besides these little imperfections you are right person on the right place to make it sound really well so I think I would give it some more time. Well done
