Sultans Of Swing – Dire Straits – Rhythm Acoustic Guitar Lesson (easy – ish)

A guitar lesson of my interpretation of the classic Dire Straits song – Sultans Of Swing. Please Note: this is just for rhythm guitar and is influenced by the original Old Grey Whistle Test performance from 1978. Also; the F barre chord can be substituted with an open F to make it easier. Loads more free lessons can be found at Guitar Tutor Man’s official website: where you can find a song sheet for this video 🙂 Please support my video creation by clicking here: 🙂
