Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Just been wondering if anyone out there knows a way of playing dire straits on the three string ime not music note wise minded i just mess till i like the sound but it seems to me that this would be possible with great effect and would bring a great deal of admaration from peaple out side of the cigar box world.
Ime not shure but itseems that ther is a fair amount of guitarickary in wot knophler does lots of slides hammers and pulloffs just wondering whao other peaple think am i right or tottaly barking up the wrong tree ?

It is my considered opinion that Mark Knopfler is not human. He is from a planet where large beasts must be appeased with amazing guitar music, or people will be eaten. No one on his planet need ever fear being devoured again. I doubt I could ever do what he does with a guitar, regardless how many strings it has or what tricks I employ, even if I were to have extra fingers grafted on. Learn to play anything that well and people will listen and take notice, I don't care what you play it on.

Dont get me wrong ime not dissing knophler you got to be good to learn that guitarickery like that the story goes he didnt come out of his room for 2 years and just played chords till he bled who knows love over gold romeo and juliet private investigations would be blinding good on a cbg plus he is a down to earth guy years ago he was on a show called french and saunders him and a few other in court saying they couldnt play without the little dots on the music maybe its on utube
