I still love the 'pre Brothers in Arms' material, but the whole big production stuff that followed hasnt really aged well for me. Knopfler is such a unique and gifted player though. I remember the 1st time I heard Sultans on the radio - I went straight to the record shop and bought the LP. Still play it now !! .
Private Investigations isnt a huge test of Knopflers talents, it's more of an atmosphere piece I guess.
For something a little different -here's 2 clips from Antonio Forcione. They call him the 'Jimi Hendrix' of acoustic guitar. He plays everything - Pick,fingers, slapping, tapping etc etc.
The first clip is him playing 'I heard it through the grapevine'. He is a great showman and adds lots of comedy amongst the serious stuff. The 2nd clip is one of his comedic pieceshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7z84VCgnfchttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qw--TQZ ... re=related
