In this video I talk about the new Amazon Prime series Daisy Jones & the Six, which is based on a book by the same name. Have you read it/watched the show?

If you haven't, and love the 70s and its music and style I highly recommend it!

Most importantly, it draws heavy influences from Fleetwood Mac and their Rumours album as well as the turbulent history between band members while recording it.

My favourite part about the whole tv show is how the writers and producers of the music (amongst them Blake Mills, Marcus Mumford from Mumford and Sons and the legend Jackson Browne) managed to capture the sound and feel, not only of Rumours, but also of the general Laurel Canyon scene into the non-fictional 'fictional' album Aurora. It is clearly influenced by Fleetwood Mac, but also crucially, it managed to add a new twist to it. A 70s album made in the 2020s one could say!

Imagine having to come up with an album that has to live up to Rumours - no mean feat - but I think they have got as close as a team could!

In this video I talk about some of the similarities I could find between 'Aurora' and 'Rumours' and have a go at playing songs from both album Which one is your favourite?

*Fun fact: the actors all play the instruments in the show themselves, no body/hand doubles in sight! According to interviews with the cast, they learnt their respective instruments for 2 years prior to recording, over lockdown. They started via Zoom and did sessions remotely until they were able to jam altogether! Pretty impressive isn't it? This proves that all it takes is to start! No matter how long it takes you, you will be glad you started when you did - progress is progress!

Here are my Fleetwood Mac tutorials that I reference in the main video - hope you have fun learning some of these!
