 Subject: TAB: Brothers in Arms
 
 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"):

 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 "?".
