Some bits that came into my head from the original joined up with bits I made up. Casio Strat.
You had quite a few packed in there! Lovely Strat tone.
You won't be getting note-for-note from me either. Personally, I thinks it's fine to put you own stamp on it. Otherwise, we could have a bit of a samey playlist at the end!
estreet Sweet Stratty tone all through, I think those bits could be easily kilobits . Good stuff!
GuitarKid Welcome! That's pretty close to Knopfler tone, lovely take.
Welcome, are you an alien? Your playing is out of this world lol.
What's your rig?
Thanks! It's very kind of you. Great players here. This was just a japanese 62 RI Strat, Blues Driver, DD-3 set to slapback, into a Vox Pathfinder. I use a mic in front of the speaker.
Thanks! And thanks for the nice track.
Here's my take. Thank you Mike:
Fantastic phrasing and dynamics, as usual. Nice!
@GuitarKid - Nice pickin' kid and hope to hear more from you.
This is what Michael Bloomfield and Mark Knopfler would sound like if combined. Loved the gut wrenching riffage!
Alan L Cole You've made it your own, sounds very nice and like Mike said a gut wrenching riffage!
@Mjark - Great tone and playing. You captured the Sultans vibe nicely.
@fendrguitplayr - Awesome! Beautifully played and spot on tone.
@tooloud - Great and gritty version. Well played.
@udoering - Sweet Sultan tone Ullrich and great playing!
@Mellencaster - Great tone - love the chord work Mike. Laid back riffin' captures the Sultans vibe nicely. Sweet!
@estreet - Really nice playing and sweet tone Carl. Definetly captured Mr. Knopfler's playing.
@GuitarKid - Welcome Mr. Kid. Another track with sweet tone and great playing. Awesome!
@Mellencaster : you stayed in the tonality with a little more blues, but with the sound you chose it get´s into another direction. Especially the opening with the tremolo guitar gives one a headstart in the direction of country. I like it!
@estreet : did I get that right? The guitar is a keyboard? If so, it´s very impressing how you make it sound like a guitar! If not, it´s still a very nice guitar played, and quite Knoplerish.
@GuitarKid : welcome here! Lovely sound like the original, and you play it in ít´s sense but with lots of your own runs. Very good debut.
@Alan L Cole : ahh, there´s the well known Alan again! Though you are using some other notes as you do when playing the blues, it transports your energy.
No it's a guitar - a Casio MG-510 - it was a normal guitar made in the Fuji-gen factory (where Japanese Fenders, Tokai & Ibanez were made) but it had a MIDI pickup and control section. The MIDI part of mine hasn't worked for years but I never used it anyway. The guitar itself is great. JJ Cale used to use them all the time. He had loads of them. He has the later version with the locking them in this pic - mine is a normal Strat trem. You can pick them up for around 400 euros on e-bay which is a steal for the quality. I love it when people come up and look at the headstock during a gig and walk away bewildered when they see the 'Casio' logo.
@GuitarKid - Nice to hear you play again. Sounds great.
@Alan L Cole - Brought the Blues to this iconic tune.
Man, it's so hot over here! We're British and we can't cope when it gets towards 90°F. My music room is in the roof of the house, and even at one o'clock in the morning, it's a sauna. It's too hot for headphones, and we have too many door open for me to use speakers without waking my wife, so I'll have to try to engage with this tomorrow. Some really nice takes so far though.
The perfect backing for my Dream Machine clone.
@knh555 : that was pretty close. I like that you did not try to to copy it note by note.
Oh well.....have heard Dire Straits until my ears was bleeding in my youth....we loved that laidback feel and uncluttered sounds....
So I went somewhere else....and....haha...
