“Go Your Own Way” by Fleetwood Mac for Beginner and Intermediate Guitar Players






Hello welcome to the first blog of 2011. Hope all of you had a great start into the New Year. Today we will start things off with this Fleetwood Mac song. It comes from the “Rumours” album. The song is probably one of their best known songs.
Fleetwood Mac started out as a bluesband in the 60s, the band went through a lot of changes and line-ups. The album where this songs comes from [around 1975] was the more successful period for the band.

Here is the song for all of you who do not know what I am talking about:

For this lesson I will just concentrate on the chords of the song. We will also be using a Capo, but later more about that.


   Here are the chords for the verse:

    F       F    C

   Bb   Bb  Bb          Play this whole part 2x

   Here are the chords for the chorus:

   Dm     Bb    C     C      Play this part 3x

   Structure:    Verse 1


                     Verse 2


                    Solo over Verse

                      Chorus + outro Solos

 When you listen to the song you will hear that the acoustic guitar does have a high sound, you can get near that sound by using a Capo on the 5th fret.

Play now the song by using the following OPEN chordshapes

    Verse:    C         C     G

                     F     F     C      

  Chorus:   Am    F     G     G

That’s it for now, enjoy and see you around next time
