Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics
Major upgrade!! After one year development the new version of Chordie is now online! Please give feedback.


Romeo and Juliet  Dire Straits

Making Movies 1980
Now I know I'm going to get some smart arse
commenting on mistakes but this is for beginners.
I have simplified all the guitar parts but they
work just as well. No-one can play like Knopler,
so neither Me or You should try.
So if you have just started and want to learn
this song then use this tab.
