Friday Fun - More Great Musicians

A few videos with more great musicians.

Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler do a very laid back version of Layla. I have always thought Knopfler was one of the most under-appreciated guitarists of his generation.



Here is Knopfler playing a great solo. He makes the guitar sing.



One of my favorite songs ever is by his band, Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing.
Here is a snip of a guitar solo from that song that shows his skill.
