Lesson notes

Mark Knopfler is one of the most talented musician’s to have come along in the last 50 years. This lesson is on one of his acoustic masterpieces, Romeo And Juliet. The song first appeared in 1980 on Dire Straits’ third album Making Movies, and remains a standard in Mark’s performances and a fan favorite still today. The song is played in Open G Tuning with a capo at the third fret, and uses what is really a free-form picking/strumming technique.
