1. As Long As You Follow

as long as you follow

As Long As You Follow was one of two new songs added to the bands 1988 Greatest Hits album.

The song reached #66 in the UK and #43 in the US. Christine McVie co-wrote this with her then husband Eddy Quintela and sang lead on this song.

As Long As You Follow is a love song about the joys and challenges of a committed relationship. The lyrics emphasize the importance of communication and staying true to each other through thick and thin.

An official music video was released for the song featuring footage of the band performing live and clips from their music videos.

Original key here is with a capo 3rd fret but much too high for me, so I'm in standard tuning using the chords D, G, A7, Bm, Gb, E and an Esus. One rhythm pattern pretty much all the way is a root down up down up - root up down up - and repeat, There are a few riffs to pick out in this one.

This is a fast paced rhythm number with a capo on the 3rd fret. The first rhythm pattern will be downs-strokes in the verses and a shuffle pattern in the chorus with a steady down down up down up down up.

i dont want to know

I Don't Want To Know is a track from the famous 1977 album Rumors. Stevie Nicks wrote this song before Fleetwood Mac formed and while she was away from the studio, they recorded the song without her with Lindsay Buckingham doing lead and vocals.

But ten the song Silver Springs was pulled from the Rumors album and replaced with this one. Nicks was angry at first about doing the lead vocals. Eventually she came around.

Four singles came from this album but this song was not one of them. The Goo Goo Dolls also covered this song.

"I Don't Want To Know" is a song about the pain and confusion of trying to move on from a failed relationship. The lyrics express Stevie Nicks' desire to cut ties with her ex-lover and move on with her life. There was no an official music video released for this song.

Use standard tuning here and just play a simple down up down up rhythm pattern with a few chords along the way. There is a bigt of picking required using these three simple chords A,D and E.

5. Leather & Lace

fleetwood mac best songs

Leather & Lace was written by Stevie Nicks for Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter's duet album but the song never made it there.

So she called on Don Henley from The Eagles and she put it on her 1981 album Bella Donna. The song reached #6 in the US and No. 19 on the UK Singles Chart.

 "Leather and Lace" is a duet between Stevie Nicks and Don Henley that explores the dynamics of a romantic relationship. The lyrics describe the differences between the two lovers, with Nicks singing about her free-spirited nature and Henley singing about his desire for stability. Despite these differences, they come together in harmony, much like the contrasting materials of leather and lace.

There was an official music video for the song. The video features Nicks and Henley in various romantic settings, such as a candlelit dinner and a slow dance.

You may want to use Drop D tuning for this one with a capo on the 2nd fret. I play a root down up down up down up  rhythm pattern and just repeat it along the way. No picking required in this one using the chords D, D/C, D/B, D/A, G, D/Gb, A7sus, A7 and a  G.

10. Songbird

songbird fleetwood mac

Songbird hails from the Fleetwood Mac album Rumors released in 1977. Christine McVie wrote four songs on this album and this was one of those.

Apparently she wrote the song at midnight in 30 minutes and since no one was around to help her remember it, she stayed up all night until she could get into the studio to lay down a track of the song.

This one I play on the 3rd fret using a 1-2-3 (arpeggio) - up down up down up and repeat rhythm pattern. The song is in standard tuning with a short picking break. The chords you'll need are D, A, G, Em, Bm, Bm/A and an A7.

You Make Lovin Fun was the last single from the 1977 Rumors album and reached #7 in Canada and #9 in the US. The lead vocalist was Christine McVie who wrote the song and who recently passed in late 2022.

It reached No. 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 45 on the UK Singles Chart.

This song was inspired by an affair McVie had with the bands lighting director. She told fellow band mate and husband John the song was about her dog.

The song was dropped in 1997 after she retired from touring but when she re-joined the group for a 2014-2015 tour, they brought the song back.

 "You Make Loving Fun" is an upbeat, joyful song about the happiness and contentment that come from a fulfilling romantic relationship. The lyrics express Christine McVie's gratitude and affection for her lover. There was no official music video released for this song.

I play this with a capo on the 1st fret using two different rhythm patterns. The first is a driving pattern down down down down down down down up and repeat. In the chorus the vibe changes  because of that rhythm changing to a down up down up down down up and repeat as you move through the chorus. Only a few chord consisting of Gbm, E, D, A and a G. A few riffs blended in here.
