Never going back again   Fleetwood Mac









NEVER GOING BACK AGAIN by Fleetwood Mac

Try my version of this song. It's sounds close to the real thing (and it's
easy for me, a mediocre guitar player, to play).  I included a bass guitar
part and two versions of the chorus accompanyment.  The first version
is played in the open position (while capoed) and the alternate version is
played using barre chords.
CAPO 6th fret
(s = slide)
(. = beat)
