Chet and Mark - See You In My Dreams
Seriously, it this doesn't do something to you, find where it should be because that part of you needs resurrecting.
What is rarely understood was that Knopfler sought out Atkins. He wanted to learn. He spent two years during which Atkins taught him what he knew. It's one of the greatest yet virtually unknown moments in modern musical history.
Look at how these two guitarists from two very separate worlds play off against each other. That, friends, is worth the price of admission.
Knopfler, the great front man for Dire Straits, went to Atkins. He wanted to learn the joyous magic of the acoustic guitar. They did this for two years. Years later they did a command performance in London to the Queen.
