How do you make a note fade in? Like Knopfler does in "Brothers in Arms."
The only way i can think of is to play the note at 0 volume and then turn it up to 11.

all help will be greatly appreciated!

Yeah, basically turn your guitar up when you play it. Doing it with the pinky is common. Or you could get a violin pedal and it'll do it automatically.

You can turn your volume knob on your guitar down then slowly turn it up while vibratoing on the notes.

There are some effects pedals that can do it automatically, the Boss GT-8 for instance. But some times you just need to use the volume knob or an expression pedal.

But I would also get a volume pedal because it may sound different when it's after your distortion. Think of it like when you put the volume pedal before the distortion, it may sound exactly like turning the volume knob. However when the volume pedal is placed after the distortion, it may sound like you are turning the volume of the distortion pedal. Also, if it's before distortion, gain may also go down.

This has probably been said in the first post but,..

Volume pedal? (like a wah, but volume instead of tone.) Volume pot? (on your guitar itself, if what your playing is too complex, use pedal.

Editing?
