I assume it was something like that. Among other things, he used a pitch bend. I think Chris plays the DX7 figureóthe one you hear in the mid range during the verses. Itís a little broken triad pattern, very easy to play while youíre singing, so I guess she played it on tour, too. But that pentatonic intro and bridge is not a Christine thing. Rick Vito did that part on guitar on the tours he did with Mac with a rapid tremolo.

Thereís a demo of ďEverywhereĒ floating around somewhere, which was first aired on a Timothy White interview on the radio back around 1988 or 1989. You can hear the DX7 on that prominently (it sounds like a digital suitcase Rhodes and it was very common on all those sappy love ballads of the 80s). I donít think that demo keyboard was kept on the album cut ó all I can hear on ďEverywhereĒ is a very phat pad. But as John Run noted, she didnít even play that on tour, instead switching to maracas.

Warmth is the key description. The album cut while ok is just too programmed and stale compared to how it could have been. You add some warmth and play it a little like it is done live, and the song would have been a bitter hit IMHO. Lindsey synthed it too much. It almost has a robotic feel to it at times.
I agree and vote for more warmth.

Everywhere is wonderful work of pop music craftsmanship and perfectly fitting vocal performance. The fact that it is the 3rd most streamed song in the Fleetwood Mac catalog is further evidence it is one of the most enduring songs of the Rumours era band and has identified with a generation of music listeners who are likely a different (younger) demographic than the make up of this forum. This list below is from the chartmaster comprehensive streaming database updated through January 31, 2021. A new update will likely be coming soon.

Not a coincidence that the top songs were all used in commercials many years after their initial release that got them downloaded in the modern age.
Not taking anything away from the songs but I just see commercials in the top 5

Agreed thatís itís a piece of great craftsmanship and arrangement. Iím not surprised to see it at #3 on the bandís streaming. The vamp at the end (where she plays the melody to Rhapsody on a Theme from Paganini) is irresistible. But I do prefer the warmth of her voice and the guitar on the demo.

Love that Oh Daddy is on that list, too! That one DOES surprise me a bit, given its melancholy. And itís above SYLM, OMH, or Hold Meóshocker!

Stevie even said herself that Oh Daddy was her favorite Christine song. That's reason enough to have it streaming in your top 10 list.

Maybe if Stevie and Mick weren't drugged out of their minds, he wouldn't have had to do it all?

When did John get sober? I forget...
