Mustang Monday Signature Series #5 – Mark Knopfler
This weeks tone was taken from the killer tones of Mark Knopfler from the Sultans of Swing song.
My reference tones for this patch were the following two clips. Check out the live version of Sultans of Swing on the live clip as well. I went for a tone closer to that than the album version. I added a hall reverb on the patch to give it that live sound as well.
This first video is the album version of Sultans of Swing
This second video features Sultans of Swing in the live concert. Check out this version not only for the tone but for the amazing chops!
Feel free to tweak this patch to suit your preference too.

Mark Knopfler is one of my all time favorite guitarists and song writers. I think what sets him apart is his original approach to playing guitar and his very melodic guitar solos that are a real cut above most other imitators out there. Knopfler is a class act on guitar and can play any style of guitar including folk, country, rock, blues and more. Check out some of his stuff with Chet Atkins for example on YouTube.
