    Do anyone know where I can find the bass tab for Brothers in Arms with Dire straits? I can't find it anywhere. Please help me to find it.

    This song really is easy enough to make your own transcription. Do it and it'll help you more than just playing that song.

    If you can't find bass tab, try to see if anyone has done a midi file. It's ages since I last heard the song but I don't recall anything too tricky about it...

    I dont think it is anything tricky about it.
    I know the whole song except for a small part that I can't hear what the bass plays on the original so I thought maybe I could find a tab for the song learn it.

    sorry for the bad english, i'm from sweden.

    If the original line is hard to hear at one point, there's a good chance that any tab on the internet (or, indeed, any other published transcription) might not get it 'right'.

    When I come across a part where the bass is hard to pick out, I take that as a section where I should play quietly and not get in the way of the other instruments. Sometimes basslines have key parts that you need to nail... and sometimes you just need to make sure you don't get in the way :D
