Is this the new Sultan of Swing?

October 15, 2015

Our Italian friend Andrea Valeri visited us here at G7th HQ recently and we were absolutely blown away by his tone and incredible arrangement of 'Sultans of Swing' by Dire Straits!

We're clearly not the only ones - Andrea already has over 3 million hits on YouTube and tours the World playing to thousands of fingerstyle fans.

Andrea told us: “I like it so much! I’m a big Mark Knopfler fan; whatever he plays, he plays it great! I remember playing Sultans when I was a child but then I arranged it in this Fingerstyle way, focusing on the right-hand movements and trying to build the band up with just a couple of hands and the guitar!”

Here he is, live from the sofa at G7th HQ:
