                        Never Going Back Again 

                        Lindsey Buckingham 

As performed by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks on a "Soundstage"
performance recorded and broadcast on PBS.

Performance on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVTG3gxdF_E

This version is in a lower key (Drop D tuning capoed on 3rd fret)
than all the other tabs I've seen, and has a nice solo interlude. 
I find it easier to play than the others.  

This is my first tab, so please be gentle with critiques :-)  
Also posting this as a Guitar-Pro file.

This is not how Lindsey Buckingham plays this song live and i doubt he has ever played it this way. Lindsey's playing style is of a basic travis picking style. The way Lindsey plays this song is far far easier and logical than this transcription. Although this transcription is good to help us add to the song and advance our playing it feels less comfortable and free flowing to how its actually played.

The transcription is good, however its the same as the ones found in the Fleetwood Mac official books. Somewhere along the line someone has transcribed this song incorrectly and its stuck throughout the years.
In the opening bars Lindsey does not you his fretting hand little finger on the high E string at all. In fact the high E string is not sounded at all until the next section (bar 3) where he introduces the 3rd finger of his picking hand. Prior to this is his just using his thumb, index and 2nd finger to pick the strings. In this version the 3rd finger comes in at bar 3.
I have just submitted the correct tab to this web site using guitar pro. Ive also added the solo he does to within the song. Again with the solo you almost got it right just got the open strings in wrong. Nice try and the only tab ive seen with the solo in, so good one. The bass notes ring out in quarter notes within each bar, So that's 4 bass notes using the travis picking style that he uses throughout the song. So the bass E being the 6th string it goes like this, 6, 4, 5,4 in each bar with the treble notes hitting on the 1st beat. Where you hit the 7th fret on the b string a second time into the slid that occurs on the 3 quarter note played on the 5th string. I can email you the tab if you message me. philiprreeves@aol.com
