Our dear friend and fan from Italy, Mauro Marchetti is back again with us here on the blog. For those who don’t know, Mauro is an Italian guitarist and musician. Today, he is living in Rome, Italy.
As most of us here, he loves the music of Dire Straits and Mark Knopfler. In 2017 we have published the first blog-post for Mauro. Back then, he shared his 7-minutes long solo version from the song “Sultans of Swing.”
In 2018 he had a great Rock N’ Blues solo video that we also shared with you here on DSB. To watch that video, please click here. Also, if you want to read all the articles on the DSB for Mauro click here.
Today, we would like to share another great video from him. Namely, this time Mauro shared his version for the song Going Home, which was a theme song for the movie Local Hero. The entire music recordings for this film were made by Mark Knopfler.
In addition to the opportunity to enjoy of Mauro’s guitar skills, he has another hobby. He is a great painter, so you can also check out his Instagram profile @mauro_fender. There you will find many interesting videos and paintings.
“My name is Mauro, and I’m from Rome. I’m a guitarist, and I always love Mark Knopfler because he is my inspiration. I play in a band called “The Sideburns,” a rock and blues trio. We had several gigs in Rome. We love Dire Straits and all the 70s stuff. Check out my page on Instagram, you can see many videos and paintings of some great guitarists,” he finished.
