Romeo And Juliet Tab

   
                          Artist : Dire Straits
               Composer / Writer : Mark Knopfler
                           Album : Making Movies
                            Song : Romeo & Juliet
                          Tabber : Straits
                                   

Guitar used: Hand crafted Steel Guitar
             (Yes thats the amazin 2million specifically designed
             around Mark Knopfler, so dont worry if yours doesnt 
             sound the same)

Ok, this is the 2nd tab of this song ive dun, cos the other one wos just chords
and wos probably a bit confusing when it comes to the timing + parts of it were
wrong, for which i appologise, but this one is pretty much as close as i can
get it.
Mark Knopfler actualy has a capo on the 3rd fret, and plays all the low chords
further up the fret board on lower strings so he does not have to move his hand
up and down the fret baord as much, however to have to play it almost completely
differently and i find it harder to play that way, so i jsut stick to playing it
without a capo.
