Its actually two different scales. One is dm aeolian which I argue is more important to know then the pentatonic scales.The other may be F maj for the chorus.

(Aeolian has three scales built in automatically, you can switch to dorian just just moving four frets down without effort. If you know aeoilian , you have penatonic , dorian and harmonic minor literally at your command. So just learn aeoilian and you automatically learn the others.)

The other scale I cant find as there was a youtube video showing the extra note that is not in dm aeolian. The video was a backing track and it switched screens in time with the song to show you the two scales in action. Which is why theres that one note and feel that alludes everyone.

Heres a backing you can practice to:

Oh here it is...its Dm Aeolian and D pentatonic AND Cmaj pentatonic! Ive heard cover bands do it and nobody ever gets it totally down due to the note swaps.

This guys Youtube channel is awesome. This video slows the song down at first to get you in the feel then speeds up. Just watch your screen and jam away.
The screen will guide you thru the scale changes.

Cool Tee, nice find ... got to be a hit when the guitar sounds great by itself with nothing else added.

Just sent me down a Chet Atkins' rabbit hole. Watching him play a fretless guitar jamming with Jerry Reed. Accurate, can't be easy making chords on a fretless guitar! :O

Favorite Mark Knopfler performance of mine, it shows his remarkable, timing and effortless right and left hand technique perfectly, could watch this video on loop all day.
