High Strung Guitar: I Don't Want to Know

This week it was announced that Christine McVie was rejoining Fleetwood Mac – bringing the entire hit version of the band back together as she joins ex-husband John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks. So, it is only fitting with our last feature of the high strung guitar as well as our typical Saturday Bubbling Under Feature that we bring something from this classic line-up of Fleetwood Mac.

Previously, this five person version of Fleetwood Mac ended in 1987 when Buckingham left the group. Stevie Nicks stayed on until 1992; and after a series of series of guitarists and one replacement for Nicks, Fleetwood Mac called it quits in 1995. In 1997, the best known version of the band was resurrected; however, Christine McVie left after a year and FM has been performing as a four piece until now.

The bestselling album for this lineup (as well as any iteration of the group) was “Rumours” which spawned our featured cut today “I Don’t Want to Know.” The double tracked guitar parts throughout this number were played on a high strung guitar by Lindsey Buckingham. All three vocalists, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham sang on this Stevie Nicks’ composition. I hope this week about high strung guitar has been educational and entertaining as well.
