Knopfler ripoff revealed!

Postby ingolee » Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:50 pm

Reviewers have accused me of doing a bad imitation of Mark Knopfler on my song Pleasure. Under intense pressure I must confess that, yes, I do Mark Knopfler imitations. Here's another one.

It's alright, Ingo, 95% of all songs flagrantly flaunt some borrowed signature sounds. And some songs sound generic, nearly indistinguishable from entire swaths of songs by multiple performers.

I must say, your Dire Straits cover is pretty darn good, especially the guitar, and even if it is not as good as Mark himself it is an admirable copy. It is also a much stronger guitar line than in the one I reviewed (yes, me!). It was as if you were still outlining the part, but there was yet a final version.

Of course it would still sound like Mark, dude, and that's OK. Now it is possible there are more people out there than I imagine who have never heard of him and barely if at all his songs, and all those people will think you're being very original, hehe. I probably give lots of songs extra points for originality when it is simply that I am unfamiliar with the fusion of performers/songs that it sounds eerily like.

Alas, in the reviews, we have lots of older folks who are especially familiar with classic retro rock as well as tons of alternative/jazz/experimental/indie/etc. that they both love and recognize for what it is, so if you pay homage to your musical heroes, you suffer the comparisons.

I theorize that we all have these inner compulsions to sound certain ways, and if it is Elvis's time, well, it will likely have to be gotten out of the system sooner or later, probably honed before possible abandonment for some other goal.

My strategy is to do such a bad or loose imitation nobody makes the connection! You might try substituting a synth for the guitar lead, add some strings and fool with the song structure to be less obvious in the future if you want to pursue this sound in future songs.
