Subject: TAB: Albatross by Fleetwood Mac

Hello,

  Just before OLGA hit the rocks with EMI I posted Albatross to you,
but unfortunately there was a minor error in the tab. By the time I
sent you a correction OLGA had been shut down. So here's my amended
version of Albatross. Thanks for all the work you guys do, it's much
appreciated.

Regards, Malc


Albatross by Fleetwood Mac

Tabbed by Malc Brookes
(e-mail: malc@malbro.demon.co.uk)

Notes:
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.

Tuning:
Standard, EADGBE.

Key:
h - hammer-on
p - pull-off
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
