Mark Knopfler

Mark Knopfler - Imagine (Acoustic) guitar tab

Song Title : Imagine (Acoustic)

Album : Secret Policeman's Third Ball

Artist : Mark Knopfler & Chet Atkins

Tabber : Straits

This song is actualy performed as a duet by Mark knopfler and Chet atkins,

so there should be two guitars playing different things, someone else has

already tabbed both parts but after trying to learn his version i found that

his tab for the lead guitar (Mark Knopfler) wasn't very gd, so i have made my

own tab for Knopflers part, I think this sounds much more like the real thing,

i hope you agree.

Also, since i cannot play 2 guitars at the same time, i have mixed in a bit of

what the 2nd guitar(Chet Atkins) plays, to make it sound a bit fuller and more

rythmic.

GD luck! hope you enjoy learning it!

Tuning : D A D G B E (DROP D TUNING!!!!!)
