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 became 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. It contains just four chords, E, Emaj7, A, and F#m, played by Green on his Fender Stratocaster into an Orange Matamp OR100.
