Watch the Mark Knopfler online guitar lesson by Jeff McErlain from Kings of Tone
Mark Knopfler was born in 1949 in Scotland and began playing guitar at an early age. Like many kids at that time he listened to American rock and roll, and blues. He was also a big fan of Chet Atkins and that influence can be heard in his playing to this day. A master of subtlety and control Knopfler is one of the most recognizable guitarists out there. Not to mention his great song writing and singing.
