In this lesson we’re going to be learning the acoustic version of Fleetwood Mac’s song ‘Big Love’. Lindsey Buckingham wrote the song in 1987 and his live performances of it have been blowing people’s minds ever since.
I have to be honest, this isn’t going to be a walk in the park for a lot of you. It’s really very fast and incredibly demanding on the right hand. Your thumb has to work particularly hard and you may find you’re getting a lot of strain. Don’t worry about this (it’s normal) just avoid working it too hard and rest for a little while if your wrist starts to hurt.
When Buckingham plays Big Love live, he usually hangs around the 140 bpm mark. However don’t feel as though you need to play it at that speed, it still sounds great at lower tempos. So bring out your metronome and gradually build up your technique.
Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Big Love!
