34. "I'm So Afraid"

Fleetwood Mac's self-titled 1975 LP ends with this paranoid blues blowout, which immediately became a live showcase for Buckingham's guitar playing. "I'm no Jimi Hendrix," he said when asked about his approach to guitar solos. "I don't have the level of proficiency to just let myself go off into something completely different every night. Nor do I think I would want to. I am someone who values musical themes. Someone who feels there should be a consistency from night to night with something. I'm not one of those people that can slam out a completely different solo every night, because I don't have the skill to do that."
