    No one's a fool . . .


. . . the remainder of the solo is basically Lindsey doing his own thing - let's just 
ourselves to do the same as well, and save "Mr. Tab-Writer" the time of having to type out 
improvised note!


NOTE: If some of this tablature seems unclear (i.e. the rhythm, the timing, the 
the ending, etc.), just listen to the song - it should be pretty self-explanatory.  If the 
tab is too complicated, feel free to play along by strumming the basic chords.

Hi Reed, Liked your fleetwoodmac tab-> destiny rules, though I'm confused.. I'm used to play it like this:
Capo 1st fret
e-----------------
B--3--3--3---3----
G-2--0--2---2-----
D-3--0--0--0--0--0
A-----------------
E-----------------

e-----------------------------------------
B--3--3--3-----3--------3---3-------------
G-2--0--2----2--------0-------2----2----2-
D-3--0--0--3----0-0-0----0-----0--3-3--3-0
A-----------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------

The chorus is, well that's my opinion, the following:
e------------------------
B---1----1--------3----5-
G--3---3---------5----5--
D-3--------3>5-5-----5---
A----1--------------3----
E------------------------
with some improsvising on this of course(fingerpick e sometimes etc.)

I guess the solo is with a dm , but like you said I guess Linsey is improvising and that's what I do too.
Don't want to be a pain in the ass, just tellin' you the way I play it, tell me what you think,
