I'm sorry, I checked it and checked it, thought it was okay and sent it.
But I have since discovered a tiny error, so here's the corrected version.

Albatros by Fleetwood Mac
Tabbed by Malc Brookes (malc@malbro.demon.co.uk)

I arranged this for solo acoustic guitar several years ago.
In section B the bass switches from F# to A (which is in the chord of F#m) 
as it wasn't possible to keep the original melody and bass.
In section C the melody is dropped a whole octave, which allows the 
F# bass line to be preserved and sounds better, I feel, on an acoustic 
than playing it above the 12th fret.

Regards

Malc

I've had some feedback about this tab, and I'm afraid I made a slight error in 
one section. Sometimes it doesn't matter how long you stare at something, a 
glaring mistake always seems to slip through. Sorry, here's a corrected version.

Regards, Malc

Albatros by Fleetwood Mac
Tabbed by Malc Brookes (malc@malbro.demon.co.uk)

I arranged this for solo acoustic guitar several years ago.
In section B the bass switches from F# to A (which is in the chord of F#m) 
as it wasn't possible to keep the original melody and bass.
In section C the melody is dropped a whole octave, which allows the 
F# bass line to be preserved and sounds better, I feel, on an acoustic 
than playing it above the 12th fret.

I've been to see Peter Green play it live and for the later section it is not 12 on the b-string and 13 on g because it starts with a bend at 10 on the b-string up to the 12th and the rest follows from there.
