Hi and welcome to MKSB, my name is Pavel Fomenkov. Over the past 10 years I've been learning guitar, finding inspiration in blues, jazz, classical and folk music, studying and playing hundreds of songs and tunes ranging from medieval chants and Bach's fugues to Blind Blake's blues and Bee Gees. It's impossible to list all the songwriters whose music I admire, but only one songwriter made me study all of his songs — Mark Knopfler.

This is the reason why I wanted to create a place, where I'd listed my breakdowns and lessons on how to play his songs, as Chet Atkins used to say, “as the composer intended”. Hopefully, in the process I will share my passion for his music and also will debunk some prejudices for aspiring musicians about guitar playing, mainly that it's hard. Surely it's not — because I'm not even a professional musician.

As a hobby I was doing tabs and chords for Mark's and other artist's songs on Ultimate Guitar website and now reached the level of confidence for making a proper video lessons, although still as a hobby.

To start things off, above is a little video of me trying to recreate one of the finest guitar duos ever recorded — Instrumental Medley by Mark Knopfler & Chet Atkins. In the description I listed every possible source of information I managed to came up with: tablature, lessons and even a semi-interactive play along for each of the tracks both for “I'll See You In My Dreams” and “Imagine”. Subscribe for more like this.

My accurate chords for the song “Beryl” from Mark's 2015 album

And the whole “Tracker Songbook” (uploaded on the day of release)

This is my rendition of “The Ragpicker's Dream” from his 2002 album:

High quality lesson on one of the ~218 brilliant Mark Knopfler's songs. I'll discuss chords, strumming patterns, soloing concepts, trivia, licks & tricks, provide a tablature and a backing track if needed.
