I don't know why, but he can solo for like the last five minutes of a song and I just sit there and listen. Plus the little licks he throws in everywhere in all of his songs. I can't think of many other guitar players who I can listen to like that, who can keep it catchy, melodic, different, but interesting for more than five minutes.

Some time ago, sitting with friends at the Pub...suddenly, one started a very unneccesary "shred vs. feel" discussion.... While one of my firends was flooding his "oponent" with arguments for shred over feel etc.etc., Harry said nothing, took then a deep nip from his beer, then finally said "Mark Knopfler.".... the other one stood up and said "fuck you", and went away pissed.

That version is AMAZING....thanks for posting. :wub:

Hell, the second solo in "Sultans of Swing" is both.

He's an amazing player, I think. It's not a question of him playing difficult stuff, but he comes up with perfect solos that most of us couldn't dream up if our lives depended on it.

A little boring in concert, unfortunately.

Definitely this. Although, doing some of those licks that cleanly and evenly with a clean amp and that kind of plucking hand control is definitely difficult.
