Lesson notes

In 1980 Dire Straits came out with their third album Making Movies, which included Tunnel Of Love, Romeo And Juliet, and the subject of this lesson, Expresso Love. This song features a killer opening riff, which serves as the accompaniment to the verse as well.

This lesson covers the syncopated strumming patterns with power chords, using double time and single time techniques, and the progressions to the chorus and bridge. It does not cover the lead, although tab to the lead is included. Good command of barre chords is a necessity here.
