Title: Brothers in Arms
Author: Mark Knopfler
Transcription by: Guillaume Laurent

Key: B maj.


A ">" means that the transition between the two notes should be smooth.
Do it the way you want (pull off, hammer on, string bend) I'm not good enough
to precisely figure out what he does.

Timing indications (e.g. 0'35") are from my CD player. 

Intro solo (starts at about 0'35"):

I indicate (approximatively) when to play what by putting lyrics fragments
under the tab. Bars are just here to provide convenient seperations,
not to indicate the beat.

What follows is only a part of the ending. It ends up at about 6'15".
(right before the fade out).
Some parts are really just guesses (actually, the whole thing is, but I really
wouldn't be suprised at all if anyone would come up and tell me these parts are
totally wrong). I underlined them with "?".
