Our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "SULTANS OF SWING" song by legendary guitarist Mr. MARK KNOPFLER. "Sultans of Swing" is a song by British rock band DIRE STRAITS from their eponymous debut album, which band frontman Mark Knopfler wrote and composed. Although it was first released in 1978, it was its 1979 re-release that caused it to become a hit in both the UK and U.S.β€œ β€˜Sultans of Swing’ was originally written on a National Steel guitar in an open tuning. Inspiration for the song came from witnessing a jazz band playing in the corner of a practically deserted pub in Deptford, South London. At the end of their performance, the lead singer announced that they were the "Sultans of Swing", and Knopfler found the contrast between the group's dowdy appearance and surroundings and their grandiose name amusing. It is composed in the key of D minor with Knopfler's vocal range spanning from G2 to D4. The song has a basic sequence of Dm–C–B♭–A as its chord progression for the verses, and F–C–Bβ™­ for the choruses.The song's riff makes use of triads, particularly second inversions. The song is in the Andalusian Cadence or diatonic phrygian tetrachord. All of the chords are compatible with a D natural minor scale, except for the A major triad, which suggests a D harmonic minor scale. Knopfler improvised and expanded that solo during live performances. In this video the coda of the live recording on the 1984 album Alchemy features one of Knopfler's most notable guitar improvisations. #markknopfler #guitar #direstraits #sultansofswing #guitars #chetatkins #bobdylan #guitarist #ericclapton #emmylouharris #sonnylandreth #sting #davidknopfler #johnillsley #fenderstratocaster #start #stratocaster #fenderguitars #gibsonguitars #gibsonlespaul #lespaulstandard #gibsongtrjunkie #fendergtrjunkie #rootsrock #celticrock #bluesrock #country #guitarsdaily #guitarporn #guitargod

I've had several requests to illustrate Roy Buchanan's Nancy. I plan to do it but as you maybe aware I add a few words on the history of the guitars to posters, prints and greeting cards. I've been trying to find out why he called the Telecaster Nancy. I've found several ideas but does anyone know which is correct ? I'd love to hear from you if you know #roybuchanan #fender #telecaster #1953 #sweetdreams #vintageguitar #bluesrock #countryrock #rocklegends #guitarhero #guitarcenter
