    If forced to pick one "best" song, I'd likely pick Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits. Here's my take with a pretty minimal arrangement.

    As a Dire Straits/ Mark Knopfler fan, I approve! Guitar? Amp? Pedals?

    When you say "best" song, do you mean this is your favorite song of all time? Or the one you play the best?

    As in a song I very much like.

    Strat Plus w/gold Lace Sensors, neck plus middle.


    Pedals and amp settings as such, mic’ed w/SM57

    Plus some tweaking in GarageBand.

    Bass is an old Peavey Patriot mic’ed through a MarkBass Nano

    Voice is, well, mine.

    percussion: shaker plus thumping on my acoustic.

    You've got that sound going. I like it!
