    And yet another version of this song:eek:

    I didn’t learn the original version from note to note, but I thought I’d borrow something from Mark and hopefully get some of my own idea in the way:whistling:

    I hope you like it:)

    Was expecting just some noodling, instead found a very clever and well played piece!
    Well done, I enjoyed that!

    Great playing! Love the tone and articulation. I really enjoyed that.
    I'd say you captured the spirit on MK there as that sounded like some of the variations he would play.
    Bravo!

    Wow! This is great, take the vibe of the original and make it your own. This is what I always try to do, much better than trying NFN copy. There's only one MK and it's not you. Let him be him, and you can be you. Really good job!

    That's got to be the best guitar cover/interpretation of Sultans of Swing I've ever heard.
    I don't know what you call this level of guitar playing... from where I stand, it is way past above the clouds.

    In terms of learning, it is good to learn nfn, but if you want to develop even more, you should learn the chords behind the solo and build your own patterns on them.

    There’s only one you, me and Mark. Good point! Be yourself:thumb:

    Thank you:)
