Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Song: Gold dust woman
Artist: Fleetwood Mac
Composer: Stevie Nicks
Album: Rumours

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' at ultimateGuitar.com)
3rd July 2015

TUNING: DADGBe (Dropped D)
Tune the bottom E string down to match the 4th string.

The version on 'Rumours' is slightly sharp of concert pitch,
to match it use a chromatic tuner and tune all strings up
approx.+20 above standard tuning.
Alternatively, search Youtube for a live version to play along with,
these tend to be closer to true concert pitch, but may vary in
their arrangements.

Add vibrato to the Dsus2 chords, and emphasise the bass note of
all chords. I've included full chord shapes for those that want
to strum them. If you're playing fingerstyle you could choose to
miss out playing the top string from all these chords.

In the coda, the rundown is a rough simulation of the bass part,
just to add some variety under the sparse vocal.
Another option for the coda would be to alternate between the
Dsus2 and a D7sus2 (000210)

N.B.
Please IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES the website
might automatically suggest and use the typed shapes
shown below:

Dsus2 = 000230   Cadd9 = x32030
Bb/D  = 0x0331   Bb6   = x13030
G/B   = x20033

h = hammer-on  p = pull-off   ~ = vibrato

For the Bb/D, I like 010030 much better. This also seems to make it easier to play the song since you can pivot on the xxxx3x (d note). As a lesser point, for simplicity, you can even get by on: G/B = x20030, and Bb = x13330 if you want.
