Money For Nothing Guitar Tabs

“Money for Nothing” is a song by the British rock band Dire Straits, released on their fifth studio album, “Brothers in Arms,” in 1985. It was written by the band’s lead singer and guitarist, Mark Knopfler, and was inspired by listening to music on the radio and watching music videos on MTV. The song became a worldwide hit and was one of the first songs to be played on MTV Europe when it launched in 1987.

The song features a distinctive guitar riff and lyrics that tell the story of a working-class man who watches music videos on television and is envious of the wealth and fame of the musicians he sees. The song’s title, “Money for Nothing,” refers to the idea that the musicians seem to be getting paid for doing nothing, while the narrator works hard for his money.
