Ilyes Berramdane is a 24-years old amateur musician from Algeria. He started playing on a guitar since he started listening to Mark Knopfler. We already have shared a few blog-posts about his video covers, so if you’re interested in reading more about him – click here.
Over these years he shared with us a couple of his video covers from Dire Straits songs. For today we want to share his video which is the intro solo cover from Dire Straits song “Heavy Fuel.” The version which he played is a live from Basel, Switzerland, 1992 – when Dire Straits had a concert there.
“This solo I played with the backing track using Guitar Rig 5 which is an amp and effects modeling software. I have always dreams to play like the genius Mark Knopfler. I bought my first classical guitar in July 2016 and I started with learning the fingerpicking technique,” he added.
“After that, I started to watch videos of Mark Knopfler’s technique. So, I create my modest YouTube channel sharing some of my covers. Hope you’re going to like them, thank you for support,” he finished.
This intro solo cover by Ilyes is published on October 19, 2019. Enjoy and comment on what do you think about Ilyes and his videos!
