From: Malc Brookes 
Subject: TAB: Albatros by Fleetwood Mac for Acoustic Guitar

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 keeps the F#m feel, IMO)
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'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.
