Need Your Love So Bad (Lead)

Animated Need Your Love So Bad (Lead) tab by Fleetwood Mac on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is the lead guitar for Need Your Love So Bad. Peter Green mostly uses the F# minor / blues scales throughout. The majority of the song is played at the same 9th-12th fret position, as shown here. In typical blues style, there aren't necessarily many notes used - it's all in how they are used. Notice the use of bends and lick phrasing.

In the original song, the vocals take up the middle of the song. Here we include them as guitar melody, because it sounds good. Playing live, Peter Green used a lot of vibrato on the sustained notes, so don't be afraid to use it wherever you feel it works too.
