Subject: TAB: Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac

Go Your Own Way
by: Fleetwood Mac
from: Rumours (originally)
this version from: The Dance
transcribed by: Kevin League (mleague@mindspring.com)

I think this song has been posted before, but I 
haven't used any of those tabs.  I figured this out all by myself.  
There are 2 guitar parts in this song: Lindsey and a rhythm guitarist(who, 
if you look closely is off to the back of the stage).  I'll transcribe both.

Lindsey's chords:
F5:133XXX
C5:X355XX
Bb5:X133XX
Dm:X5776X

Rhythm guitarists chords:
capo VIII (all chords relative to capo)
A:X02220
Asus2:X02200
E:022100
D:XX0232
Dsus2:XX0230
F#m:244222

L=Lindsey
R=rhythm (During the verse, the rhythm alternates between Asus2 and A 
quickly and does likewise w/Dsus2 and D.  I'll call these riffs D* and A*.

Verse 1:
L: F5                                  C5       Bb5
R: A*                                  E        D*
   Lovin' you isn't the right thing to do.      How can I ever change 
                
L:              F5       F5                                    C5  Bb5
R:              A        A*                                    E   D*
  things that I feel?    If I could, baby I'd give you my world.   How

L:                                     F5
R:                                     A
   can I when you won't take it from me?

Chorus:
L: Dm      Bb5         C5                       Dm      Bb5        C5
R: F#m     D           E                        F#m     D          E
   You can go your own way. (Go your own way.)  You can call it another

L:              Dm      Bb5         C5                     
R:              F#m     D           E                      
   lonely day.  You can go your own way. (Go your own way.)

Verse 2:(same pattern as verse 1)
Tell me why everything turned around.
Packing up shacking up is all you wanna do.
If I could, baby, I'd give you my world.
Open up, everything's waiting for you.

e keep bending for 4 measures) For a little while here, Lindsey mixes
B----------------------------- between bending the "e" on the 15th fret
G----------------------------- with hammer ons from 13th to 15th fret on 
D----------------------------- the "e" string, then the final riff
A-----------------------------
E-----------------------------

e-------------------|
B-------------------|
G-------------------|
D-0-0-2-3-2-0-------| play this riff 3x, then end on a big C5 
A-------------0-1-3-| (rhythm plays chorus chords over this riff and 
E-------------------|  ends on an E chord)

That's about it.  Again, you'll need to listen to the cd for timing.  
There might be a few notes that I left out, but he goes into some fast 
hammer ons that would be VERY tedious to tab out, but I'm sure you'll be 
able to figure them out.  Remember, Lindsey plays w/his fingernail and not 
a pick, so use yer fingernails to get some of the squeals and harmonics he 
gets.  Have fun!

nice tab, one mistake though

e--1--1--1--1--------------------------------------------|
B--1--1--1--1--------0-2-0---3---------------------------|
G-2--2--2--2-------3-------3-3(let Bb ring)-----3-3---3--|
D--------------3-5-----------1--------------3-5-----5---5|
A--------------------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------------------|

You put all the notes one string too high. Just a slip-up though, anyone can make the mistake by accident
