Starting with their self titled 1978 debut, the spell-binding guitar chops of Mark Knopfler helped Dire Straits make an indelible stamp on the landscape of modern rock.

This excellent 2DVD set will help you master the eclectic Mark Knopfler mix of melodic hard rock and country chops that defined the Dire Straits sound.

          Mark Knopflers Songs zu spielen ist nicht einfach. Dieses Musikheft hilft vor allem mittels DVD die Akkorde genauer zu verstehen und mitzuspielen. Das kostet einerseits Mühe, andererseits wird das belohnt. Wer den spezifischen Gitarrenstil von Mark Knopfler liebt, wird mit diesem Heft und der DVD fündig und hat trotz mancher Mühe viel Spaß am Lernen

          Fantastic break down of each lick with note for note accuracy. Get the book that he recommends for accurate tabs.

          Another great DVD from Lick Library. Jamie Humphries is on top form again and explains everything in a really easy to understand way. He also breaks each section down into manageable chunks so you can go back to the start of that section to nail it.
