Go Your Own Way Analysis + TAB T

Fleetwood Mac‘s Go Your Own Way is in the (for guitar players) awkward key of F.

What’s more, there are several layers of guitars, some using a capo.

This means that our challenge as the only guitarist in the band is to combine the most important chord riffs into one guitar part that works live.

As a member, you get TAB for how this can be done, alongside an analysis of what’s going on with Go Your Own Way’s chords.

Once you know the TAB, you’ll remember the verse riff by seeing the chords, which without extensions are just chords I – IV, like this:

||: F (Fsus2) | F (Fsus2) | F (Fsus2) | C (C6) |
| Bb (Bbsus2) | Bb (Bbsus2) | Bb (Bbsus2) | F (Fsus2) :||

The chorus, solo, and outro use the progression VI – IV – V, in the key of F this is:

||: Dm | Bb | C | C :||

Go Your Own Way and Rumours!

As the band members’ marriages were falling apart, they put the experience into the songs that made up the incredible album Rumours (1977).

No more obvious is this than in Go Your Own Way where Lindsey and Stevie take turns in singing to each other about how they are breaking up.

As they harmonize it is an odd feeling as everyone listening to the album knows the backstory.

To top it off, because the album was one of the most successful of all time (40 million copies worldwide), the band had to stick together, tour, and sing these songs to each other every night!

The follow-up, Tusk was musically and commercially a disaster, still, they stuck together until 1987, ten years after they recorded Go Your Own Way, incredible.
