Romeo And Juliet was written by Mark Knopfler for Dire Straits in 1981 and appears on their album ‘Making Movies’. Knopfler recorded the song on a resonator but it sounds just as beautiful on an acoustic guitar if you ask me.
It’s a pretty difficult song to play at times with some awkward chord changes and tricky picking patterns going on. Having said that, it does become very comfortable with practice and a real joy to play. Once you’ve mastered it it’ll likely become a song you continue to play for many years to come as it’s just so much fun!
