It has always amazed me to watch anyone who is truely a master at his/her given craft. The ease and pure talent is a gift. It also amazes me thst no matter how much I love this music, I know I can not play a guitar. I have tried and I just do not have the ability.

Mark Knopfler Russia mark was without doubt a guitarist who inspired me to learn and play. I can’t thank him enough music is a window to the soul and I would be lost without it

I have a National acoustic electric. Got it in 1954. It has a very nice tone. You are very talented and my idol. Love your video Walk of Life. I was into country music when I got my first sears & roebuck guitar when I was 10 years old. Was in some variety shows and on tv a couple times but fate had me giving up on my music for a home and family. Now 78 and wish I had stayed with my music.

Im having a lazy morning in bed, in Japan. It's a rarity for me because I'm usually always chasing something. This was such a treat as I sip my coffee and the sun rises while the birds are singing outside the window. First time I've had the pleasure of seeing this guy talk and play up personal. I'm a new fan for sure. Inspired with thanks.

OMG That sound at 5:10 is something else!!!!!!

Humility is indeed what shines through. Having demonstrated his easy mastery of several different guitar idioms, it’s beautiful when he says, right at the end, that playing open chords is more his style. He’s more intent on being honest and encouraging than he is on enhancing his reputation. And by being that way, he does indeed enhance it.

Thank you Mark for this. Thank you for taking the time to share this with those who would listen. Youre giving gems here sir. Your humbleness and giving nature still after all your success is impressive and great. Thank you much for this Sir. It does not go unappreciated.

¿Qué guitarra es la que toca Mark? ¿Es especialmente construida para él? ¿Es una marca adoptada por él? Gracias

I'm amazed watching this video by just how differently music can be interpreted. I probably have close to no affinity whatsoever with this man, and we're both guitarists and song-writers. I'd probably have nothing to say to him if we met, and yet people think musicians are one homogenous group.

Know his guitar tech. Glen. He played with his best mate Steve Philips at my Sister's birthday party many many years ago. My wife intervened back in the 1980's when someone tried to have a go at him down in a pub just off Holland Park Avenue. We were sitting having a drink with him. Thoroughly nice bloke, quiet unassuming and a very charitable lovely man.

Mark Knopfler is one of the greatest guitar players in history. Not sure why this channel is named Mark Knopfler Russia.

Walk of life is every wedding default song to get up and dance even if you don’t necessarily want to 🎶 👌🏻
I love his stare, how he looks tired and battered by life, the calm and collected way of his talking. As if he's almost dead inside, but then a few cords bring a faint but wholly genuine smile to his face.. It's good to be alive.

He has always been one of my favorite guitarists, and now I have more reasons why. So humble, but one of the greatest around. I don't often play with a pick, and I really appreciate his versatile approach to the guitar.
always always loved his playing...

Can somebody please explain to me why this as 1.2k dislikes - maybe those of you who have disliked it would be listening to "real" music like Lady Gaga or some other shit like that LOL
Paul Stewart (7 days ago)
This man is a inspiration, he's not in it for the fame or the adoration or money or recognition or anything, he's simply in it for the music - Thanks Mark you've been with me throughout my life, long may you continue
nicsandknacksandseans (7 days ago)
I don't know if I never want to put my guitar down, or never pick it up again...
joseph sowder (7 days ago)
I know what you mean, inspiring but also a little depressing
Austin Kirkpatrick (7 days ago)
I love how Mark has a hard time articulating what he’s wanting to get across, but his guitar always finishes his sentence for him
Chris Knight (7 days ago)
Wonderful - my blood pressure just dropped into the green zone watching this. When I first heard Sultans of Swing I was a 20-year-old lonely student on industrial placement in a small town in Belgium. SOS came on the radio and I have never been so gobsmacked! Never heard anything like it before and the musicianship was just off the scale - all wrapped up in some unique guitar licks from Mark. Decided there and then to spend my first pay on an acoustic Yamaha which I still play 40 years on.. A guitarist's guitarist if ever there was one.

Pure soul. He holds that '58 Les Paul like a deeply loved and cherished woman.

My favorite part is the "That's my thing" comment at the end.
Thank you for the refreshing technique, Mark. Hmm, DireStrait I love the style. First heard it from my dentist in Winchester UK while studying at Brockwood Park long time ago.

Tom Vaughan (11 days ago)
Thank you so much Mark! Appreciate you sharing your vast experience and know how with this old fan. I get it!
Carlos Bosso (11 days ago)
God, he's such a damn good teacher. That was a great thing to say, the first thing he said. You got to really want to play because your fingers don't want to do what they're told.

How cool would it be to hear Mark and Lindsey Buckingham jam out an acoustic together
Didier M'Baku (11 days ago)

Richard Hammer (11 days ago)
This is just Mark inadvertently showing off! If anything it makes me want to pick up a guitar even less, his total mastery of every guitar type and playing style is overwhelming, the knowledge I’d never be that good in a lifetime (don’t have the commitment either) is depressing. Think I’ll leave it to the masters!
Giovanni Brunoro (12 days ago)
This is probably one of the few videos I watched from the beginning to the end since ages. This man is divine.
John Waldron (12 days ago)
There are guitar players...and then there are " Masters ". Could you just imagine spending a week with Mark? The easy way he explains things..a true Master.
