“Brothers In Arms” is one of the greatest classic hit songs by Dire Straits. This song has a really emotional instrumental background, it touches your heart and feelings, and also sometimes its melody knows how to shed tears from your eyes.
Lyric of this song by itself is strong and hard because the theme is war. Actually, the background of this song is the theme of the Falkland War and is described by some as an anti-war song. Anyway, today we would like to present to you, an acoustic session and arrangement by Colin Tommis.
Namely, Colin Tommis is a musician and a guitarist who has made a wonderful instrumental cover of the song “Brothers in Arms” by Dire Straits, on his acoustic guitar. On October 11, 2020, he recorded and published his full 6-minutes cover video.

“Hello fellows, it occurred to me that some of your blog-viewers might enjoy this video. It’s a fine song and well-suited to this sort of approach. All the best.”
On this occasion, we would like to thank Colin as a team for contacting us and sending us this amazing video cover. It really deserves to be shared on our blog page.
This classical guitar arrangement of the “Brothers in Arms” song sits well on the instrument. It is a music video of this award-winning Dire Straits song. Mark Knopfler said it was a song of soldier solidarity. His original video of it won a Grammy award. This slow spacious and melancholic version allows the timbres of the instrument to sing.
Colin recorded this video using two sE1a microphones with a U-Phoria UMC404HD interface. Then, he sent the audio recording to Germany where David Qualey has done a wonderful engineering job on the sound.
The guitar was made by Tony Johnson, a luthier operating in Holmfirth in the UK. The video footage was shot at Delmar in Cheshire.
