It was kind of a dare to see if I could not only play and sing this great Dire Straits song, but make my own backing track sequence from scratch. I learned it last week and played it on 2 gigs so far. Probably not an exact copy of Mark Knopfler's studio version because I didn't play it with my fingers. I used a hybrid picking style with a pick and 2 fingers. I listened to the live versions of this song by Dire Straits. He doesn't play it even close to the original studio version, so I have no worries if I play it a tad different. I'm playing my custom Smitty Sparklecaster that I built and painted. It has Lace Sensor gold pickups. I am playing into a Line 6 pod XT Live fx pedal and straight into my mixer. The backing track was created on my Ensoniq ASR-10 keyboard. Yes, that's me playing all the parts. It is not an mp3. It's a midi sequence made solely for my Ensoniq keyboard. I have made 1000s of sequences for my Ensoniq ASR to play. I have access to all of them at my gigs.
