Lesson notes

In 1985 Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits released one of their greatest albums, Brothers In Arms, which included The Man’s Too Strong.

The song opens with a little folk picking melody, which progresses into a somewhat country ballad, followed by an almost symphonic, crashing sequence, before returning to subsequent verses. This lesson covers all the rhythm guitar parts, as well as the unusual outro, really another new section.
