Money For Nothing by Dire Straits (Mark Knopfler) | rhythm
An electric guitar lesson on how to play the main riff rhythm guitar part to "Money For Nothing" by Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler.
This is about as iconic as it gets for guitar riffs!
Excellent playing and feel from Mark Knopfler on this. It's actually quite difficult to nail this lick and will take some time for a most players.
It's all done with the thumb and fingers. It's the only way to get it sounded right and if you're not used to playing that way it'll be a real challenge!
It's very unique picking and possibly outside the realm of most rock guitarists, but with a little practice it should come together.
I've broken it down as best as I can, but a lot of it is just getting the feel.
I really enjoyed working on this tune and I hope you enjoy the lesson. Cheers
