The Style of Mark Knopfler (Romeo & Juliet)

Welcome to our weekly Music Corner Drop-in series where take a deep dive into a broad range of subjects on everything guitar and music in general.

This week we’re exploring the acoustic playing of the amazing Mark Knopfler with Romeo and Juliet (but in standard tuning).

Lots of techniques, know-how and much more to apply to your own songs.



This is the second of two sessions looking at the style of the amazing Mark Knopfler.

He’s a master of rhythmic strumming, he intersperses lots of foot-tapping riffs and plays jaw-dropping solos. Mix on top of this his fingerstyle skills – lots to learn in these sessions where we’ll be looking at some of the techniques he used as part of some of his songs.

This time we’re focusing on his acoustic skills with the instantly recognisable Romeo and Juliet.

If you’re interested in buying the materials of session 1’s Sultans of Swing these are available to buy; see below.

BTW, if you can’t make session 2 but would like the materials (PDF, Zoom recording of the live lesson) then just buy session 2 (and drop us an email to say that you can’t join live).


Music Corners in general

These weekly one hour sessions are designed to give us the tools to self-improve and widen our  knowledge in the following general areas: rhythm, reading music, improvising, understanding music theory, getting good tone, how to play a solo, how to play with a group, how to develop your ear, learning the rules of music through transcribing the history of a genre. Our tutor, Jamie McCredie, will share key things he has learned over years that have helped to make him the professional guitarist and musician he is today.


You will receive any relevant PDFs and a Zoom video recording of the live lesson i.e. everything you need.


Session suitability
These sessions are most suitable for intermediate players with a tad of music theory/knowledge but players of all standards will register some lightbulb moments and pick up some great ideas and approaches.
