Mike Kopf : He is a superstar and yet so down to earth. It's like he has no idea nor does he care how awesome he is.

Sweet Pea : what He calls not always simple to the 'average' self taught picker wannabe

Jim B : Mark could make a 2.50 cent guitar sing:) Genius!

Hear Pal Here : Wow, all I can say is that I knew Mark was an incredible guitar player (if all he ever did was record Sultans of Swing), but I had no idea how incredibly diverse his playing technique was. He seems to know just about every kind of musical style there is. Incredible to see him go through so many different genres in such a short video. Awesome! And for someone who says the jazz stuff is not his type of music, he seems pretty at home with some tasty changes at the end of the video too! Rock on!

Andrew Power : "It's not my thing"....*plays it better than most whose thing it actually is*

MobiusBandwidth : "Fun for young and old, in this case, old" lol. Love this guy. one of the best. Brothers in arms is one of the most powerful pieces of guitar music of all time, simple, soulful, heartfelt, pure gut-wrenchingly emotional melody. (the lyrics help too).
