You can play along with the Fleetwood Mac video in GCEA tuning, if you put your capo on the 4th fret! Thanks to Chris for submitting this song for our BUG Jam. He's going to lead us in this song at our jam on November 15, 2023. He's provided the following notes explaining how he strums the song, and in addition, he's submitted a short video of himself demonstrating the strumming. You can play along with his video and slow it down, using the little gear wheel on the bottom right of the video, to really grasp what he's doing.

CHRIS's NOTES: In the intro, every second time I'm doing the F/C,  I finish the chord with a triplet in which I lift off the F part of the F/C on the third strum of the triplet. For all the F and G chords in the song, I'm shuffling between F and Dm or G and Em. I've made a rhythm guide video for your reference which is posted below.
