Tuning: Standard

Difficulty: Advanced


capo 5

Full tutorial on playing it to the high guitar sound of Lindsey Buckingham.
The Key is in G, but tabbed relative to capo.

The most important aspect of playing this song well is being precise on the high (e) string,
this is really where the whole song gets its feel. Soft in the verses and a bang
in the chorus. Enjoy!

Chorus
-I like to change in between the big A chord diagramG+G and the A chord diagramG6G6 for the chorus for the best sound.
Every other time pull of the pinky on your normal A chord diagramG+G

-You don't need the slap in the second half,
just play A chord diagramG6G6 like the Big G, just depends on the time of the song.
-The first 2 D's are played hard and go with "Love You" "With You" etc  quick chord change to A chord diagramB minorBm
