Composed by Peter Green, this guitar-based instrumental by Fleetwood Mac was released as a single in November 1968. It was a major hit in several countries and was Fleetwood Mac's only Number 1 hit in the UK Singles Chart. It was re-released in the UK in 1973 and peaked at Number 2 in the charts. The single has sold over 900,000 copies in the UK.
The composition and its arrangement suggest a relaxing sea setting, with cymbals imitating the sound of waves. Mick Fleetwood played his drum kit using timpani mallets to give a muted sound and it features a dreamy guitar solo from Peter Green. The number contains just four chords, E, Emaj7, A, and F#m, played by Green on his Fender Stratocaster into an Orange Matamp OR100.
This is a one-off single rhythm complete with intro's/endings/fills & variations written in the style of the song for newer Ketron instruments. (Please note this is not a song file - often referred to as a midi file - that refers to and plays only one song. Subject to the chords you play on your instrument this style can be used for many numbers of which Albatross is just one).
