Brother In Arms

Transcribed By - Chris Howard 
 
Here's the Dire Straits classic - Brothers In Arms. I'm almost 100% I got it all right. If not I'd like to know. 
Email me at [email protected] with comments/suggestions so I can try and make this tab even better. 
I'd like to here from you. Enjoy playing this song and good luck :)
