There aren't really easy ways to play it. Just practice, practice, practice. Use the slow down feature on GP too.

You could just learn the chords, but what fun is that.

This thread is as of much use as Anne Frank's drumset.

He uses his fingers. I mean, it's a classical styled song. I think you would have trouble playing that with a pick.

Yeah, it's a pretty hard song. Not impossible or anything. Just practice with a metronome.

I mean, it's the killers version. It's a little different, but the same song. If you REALLY want to learn the Knopfler version, then you can.

It looks fine, I don't have my guitar with me though. It's just the intro though, and almost the same as Knopfler's.
