Potent Pairings: How to Sound Like Fleetwood Mac

Disclaimer: Our Potent Pairing series aims to get you in the ballpark of the sounds on your favorite recordings using affordable, accessible pedals. The pedals featured are not the exact pieces of gear used on the recordings.

Since their original formation in the late-'60s and through various personnel changes and iterations, British–American band Fleetwood Mac has remained a hugely influential mainstay in rock music.

Their 1977 release Rumours has sold over 40 million copies to date, placing it eighth on the list of the highest–selling albums of all time behind the likes of Michael Jackson, Pink Floyd, and the Bee Gees.

Today, we're paying homage to Fleetwood Mac with another installment of our Potent Pedal Pairings series. Watch the video above for our overview of how to nail the band's seminal sounds with common guitar effects, and be sure to take a look at our library of other Potent Pairings videos here.
