I love Knopfler, Sultans of Swing was one of the first songs I learned on guitar a few decades ago...it taught my brain to construct melodies by using chord shapes, essentially introducing me to the rough idea of arpeggios early in my playing...and it's still one of my 'go-to' tracks when I wanna jam out.
I must say thanks for putting Knopfler back into my brain (as Bigburgh said, I've buried a few of my original inspirations under my current favorites). However I have to admit, with a title like "Attention: Guitar Players" I was hoping for something more than this. I understand the piece presented in the OP is powerful to many (myself included), but the guitarist in me will be leaving disappointed.
Time to jam some Sultans of Swing!
