Sultans Of Swing for solo guitar - video


Complete with the two full guitar solos and every lick Mark Knopfler plays, transcribed note for note.
Be sure to bring out the melody and make some sort of contrast (tonal or dynamic) between the melody and the licks played in between the melodic lines.
Feel free to try different fingerings for certain phrases. I have, however spent a long time fingering this piece to make it as fluent and easy to play as possible (as I do with all my arrangements).
The chords in the refrain can be strummed or plucked; I prefer a mixture of both (see the video above).
