This lesson teaches an acoustic version as Mark plays it post Dire Straits acoustically. You’ll learn his acoustic guitar part which makes a perfect guitar/vocal solo arrangement. It doesn’t cover the electric parts on the Dire Straits version.
It’s broken into multiple sections so you can learn each part before moving on to the next.
