Title: Brothers in Arms Live: Nelson Mandela Tribute Concert
Author: Mark Knopfler
Transcription by: Eddy Burns

This is the tab for the live version of Brothers in Arms at the Nelson
Mandela Concert. If you don't have a copy of this song go and visit 
kazaa.com and you can download it from there with Kazaa. I think you
can buy the concert on CD as well if you prefer.

It is the only version of this song worth having in my opinion. It is
probably the best guitar playing i have ever heard in my life.
Mark Knopfler just has magic in his fingertips. 

So here it is all tabbed out for you. The tab is pretty perfect, 
there might be one or two wrong notes in there but on the whole it 
should be note for note. I haven't tabbed out the timing right but
if you listen to the song you should hear the timing, the notes here 
are correct.

If i don't know the note or if i'm unsure i'll put a '?' under the tab at it.

I indicate (approximatively) when to play what by putting lyrics fragments
under the tab. Bars are just here to provide convenient seperations,
not to indicate the beat.

Fantastic tab!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Note for Note and possibly one of the best guitar solos of all time.
If anyone likes dire straits then this is the only version of brothers in arms you'll ever need. The rest are nothing in comparision to this one. And this tab is perfect.

Good Job
