Clips from Guitar Stories

Update: Soon after Sky Arts aired  Guitar Stories, the full video appeared on youtube:



As most fans will already know,   Sky Arts 1 will broadcast Guitar Stories on October 16 at 10pm  (some more info on Guitar Stories’ facebook page). Presented by John Illsley, Mark talks about his most important guitars.

In addition to the first trailer, a few more preview clips appeared recently which I put together for you here:


Clips 1 – 4:
The National Style-O

1961 Fender Stratocaster

Hofner V2

Another clip, with the 1958 Les Paul, cannot be embedded. You can watch it directly on youtube.

  1. Ingo, can you tell me what scales Knopfler uses in the first video? It´s rather unusual for his style of playing (except private investigations…).

    Maybe it´s an impulse for a new lesson of yours? 😉

  2. One of a number of great guitar stories and legends is Mark’s, about his Red Strat: a guitar model with a landslide of cultural and historical reference. Thanks, Mark.

  3. Great documentary! Now I’ve got the itch to try out a resonator.
    Does anyone know who makes that Les Paul style single cutaway resonator that Steve Phillips was playing at the pub jam?

  4. I really loved reading your blog. It was very well authored and easy to undertand. Unlike additional blogs I have read which are really not tht good. I also found your posts very interesting. In fact after reading, I had to go show it to my friend and he ejoyed it as well!
