                The Eagles - Hotel California
as performed on the album "Hotel California"
(Henley/Frey/Felder)



I`ve seen many versions of this song on the net, 
and they are mostly fruity.
This is the version with chesthair.

A few things before you get started:
-standard tuning (e b g d a e)
-where bars are connected with vertical lines (|), they are
played simultaniously. There are 8(!) guitars in this song, so you 
better have some guitar-playing friends.
-the timing is NOT AT ALL accurate, so listen to the song.
-the small fill-ins and background guitars are easier to hear 
on a live recording, so download one. The best by far is 
the version from the Millennium concert, off the "Selected works"-album
-I didn`t bother to put the chords in, so you`ll have to look elsewhere 
for them. Chords sucks anyway, it`s so nice to leave them out so we
can take care of some serious business.

Tabulature explanation:
  h = hammer on
  p = pull-off
  x = mute note
 PM = palm muting
  ~ = vibrato
  \ = slide down
  / = slide up
  b = bend string 
  r = release bend
 AH = artifical harmonic


Here we go then:
