  • Hi GMC!

    This time we are going to play a pretty simple tune. You can hear a strong Mark Knopfler influences - both musical and technical aspects. As always you can add your own musical sensivity to this tune and develope your own phrasing. The cool thing is that I play with my fingers intuitively, it gives me a full freedom to express myself and connect with the guitar. This is "music on the first plan and technique on the second plan" type of the lesson, so feel free and enjoy the music.
