Mark Knopfler actualy has a capo on the 3rd fret, and plays all the low chords
further up the fret board on lower strings so he does not have to move his hand
up and down the fret baord as much, however to have to play it almost completely
differently and i find it harder to play that way, so i jsut stick to playing it
without a capo.

man i seriously have no idea what im suppose to be playing, never read a more confusing tab, you dont even specify if your tabbing the version with a capo or not, since you said how this guy uses it, but you dont like to, and he uses different chords, but you find yours easier.... bit confusing...

though the chords are right, everything must be related to the 5th capo, so the solos are different!
