Me playing the most romantic song by Dire Straits.
This is an arrangement IN STANDARD TUNING (I know that the original version is in open tuning with capo on 3rd fret, anyway if u have to play this song during a gig and you can't change tuning this version is very useful :-).......
"Romeo and Juliet" is a song by the British rock band Dire Straits, written by Dire Straits singer and lead guitarist Mark Knopfler. It first appeared on the 1980 album Making Movies and was released as a single in 1981. The song subsequently appeared on the Dire Straits live albums Alchemy and On the Night, and later on Knopfler's live duet album with Emmylou Harris, Real Live Roadrunning (though Harris does not perform on the track).

The song opens on an arpeggiated resonator guitar part played by Knopfler, who also sings the lead vocal. The instrumentation remains simple during the verses and moves to a full-on rock arrangement in the chorus sections.

The lyrics of the song comprise a description of a conversation between the two lovers of the title. In addition to the obvious reference to William Shakespeare's play of the same title, the song makes playful allusion to other works involving young love, including the songs "Somewhere" from West Side Story, which is itself based on the Shakespeare play and "My Boyfriend's Back".(wikipedia) w ROSAMISTICA
