Sup fellas. I'm still noobing my way through Tunnel of Love by Dire Straits, and I've picked up loads of techniques from it. Was just wondering what songs other people might have learnt and thought "hey, I learnt loads from that song". From Tunnel of Love, I've learn a few different chord shapes, loads of extra stuff/licks to add to the minor pentatonic scale (the final solo seems really focused on position 1).. I've learn some really cool bends, a quick little scale run down.. There's a part in both the first and final solos where he actually bends a note up, and hits a note on the string below as well - sounds really cool and it's not something I ever would have thought to put in my own solos. So many techniques in this one song, I feel like I've learnt more just from learning this song over the last couple days-week than I have in like the previous 8 years since I've been playing instruments. Crazy. The biggest thing I've learnt is probably phrasing. Each lick/line or whatever seems to have a definite "full stop" kinda deal after it, even when he seems to be playing continuously, he's not, there's definitely moments where it's almost like the guitar takes a breath or something. Even if it's only for a split second, it just shows to me I don't need to be constantly making guitar noise to write a solo. The start of the final solo is all about the space. Really have learn a lot. I'm definitely not saying I can play the song the same way he does, I'm just saying, this one song has taught me loads of techniques and licks and stuff, it's awesome. I'm half interested in what single song taught YOU the most new stuff, and I'm half interested in stealing those ideas and perhaps learning from the songs mentioned here (if there is any).
