                Gypsy - Fleetwood Mac

Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Fleetwood Mac
Gypsy (1982)
(Stevie Nicks)

From: "Mirage"

A beautiful song that I really like and spent a good deal of effort to 
transcribe. Two trolls voted down this tab - which I think is undeserved. 
Check it out and and if you like the tab, please vote - thank you!


There are two versions here:
1. Capo 3rd fret (I think a little easier to play)
2. No capo

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

   To a room with some lace    and paper flowers

  Back to the gypsy     that I was

I really like this tab. I think you can perform the song pretty well with how it is laid out. Nice job!

Thank you very much for rating my Gypsy tab!

Just a question because I'm curious: This tab received one star ratings from some users long ago, obviously some trolls. Then it got better ratings. But it never recovered from the initial blow. Somehow people shrink back from giving it a 5-star rating. I really want to know why. I just played along to the original and I thought it sounded fine. It is well-laid out, has all the chords and instrumental parts, features two versions in different keys with explanations and suggestions for voicings etc.

You gave it four stars, too, which is a fine rating - thanks! But I care about my tabs and want to make them as good and reader-friendly as possible. You commented that you "really" liked the tab and that its layout was helpful. What made you not give it 5 stars?

Thank you very much for your help!
