the man is already a legend in my mind but did you know he mostly does not use a plectrum? His thumb must be made of steel! I'm on plus 1 so they are just starting, in my opinion their best song, the Tunnel of love, thought Sultans of Swing has to be no 1.5. Yes ladies I have had a sherbet!

Tunnel of Love's a great tune, but Portobello Belle, Where Do You Think You're Going and Romeo and Juliet are probably my favourites. Definitely preferred them before Brothers In Arms came out (although Why Worry is another classic)

Where d’ya think you’re going is....sublime. As is most of Communique. On every street is pretty up there too.

Mozz I know half a dozen paratroopers, the world biggest tough guys. Brothers in arms on the juke box in our club reduces them all to tears and they love it. Before all this madness, last April I was going to one of their weddings.
A lot if guitarist who use thumb and fingers prefer both the connection with the instrument, and the less twangy sound they get.

Regular practice builds calluses on the parts of the finger and thumb used, so eventually it doesn't hurt.
I could well imagine Brothers In Arms has that affect on many a serviceman Tora. Knopfler is one of the few vocalists I can successfully karaoke, as he has no vocal range either :-)

fair enough AH as someone with nothing but envy for musicians I cannot claim any expertise, merely gratitude for their abilities.

Hardly the world biggest tough guys then.
Depends on the circumstances really Roy. Tough on the battlefield, not so much when listening to Dire Straits.
Yes, Dire Straits are always a good Karaoke bet. Sultans is swing is a good one.

Don’t worry about roy, if it’s not AC/DC it ain’t worth checking a prawn on the barbie.
They possible do remember that. I know more than half a dozen Royal Marines and have never known any of them reduced to tears over a song...I have also been to two weddings of said Marines (quite what that has to do with anything I don't know)
