Tabs too difficult? Try these video lessons and learn fast.
                A classic rock song by song writer / guitarist Mark Knopfler.


Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
/ = slide (low to high)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure

*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration.
However, you will find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes
and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.
