So to back to answer the question Birds This is what teaching in 20-21 looks like shirt Knopfler vs Gilmour. …. Gilmour wins. This is not to take away from Knopfler, a top notch player no doubt. His style is intriguing, most notably known for his signature finger picking technique and his melodIius country type bends and fills. He plucks the strings mostly with his thumb and index fingers. He never uses a pick. I think he occasionally uses his middle finger. I am a fan. I have been to a couple of his post DS showes. He is known for being invited to perform with Clapton and Chet
me that equates to an undeniable stamp of approval . Birds This is what teaching in 20-21 looks like shirtThere is a particularly enjoyable video on you tube of Mark and Chet perfoming the instumental of the classic See You In My Dreams. He is a very smooth and creative player. He will lay back and yet give intensity at the same time, much like Gilmour …but let’s face it…coming from Dire Straits… a great band …very solid but not in same class as Pink Floyd ….. so let’s give this to David Gilmour. Should anyone feel different I would love to hear their reasoning.
