Knopfler-style Rock’n’Roll Riffs

Don’t miss my latest video on Youtube. Here I am playing and explaining some riffs with that typical thumb-and-fingers picking pattern. You’ve heard such riffs on Knopfler/Dire Straits songs like Two Young Lovers, Walk of Life, Next Time I’m in Town, Overnight Sensation (by Tine Turner), Industrial Disease, Poor Boy’s Blues, and countless others.

  1. Hi Ingo Raven, I just recently started playing electric guitar, but your videos inspire me to progress and this video is no exception. It’s true that I couldn’t repeat your riffs directly from the video because of my lack of experience and skill, but I found a way out. I used a program I downloaded here. With it, I took screenshots of the moments when you were moving your fingers on the fingerboard, and tried to do the same little by little. And after literally a couple of days, I’m slowly but correctly playing those riffs. Thank you again!
