The Eagles – Hotel California
Learn how to play The Eagles – Hotel California note-for-note on guitar.
There are two lessons available for Hotel California: the Acoustic part and the full lesson. Please note that the Acoustic part is included in the full lesson.
The Eagles – Hotel California Acoustic Part
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS LESSON IS ALREADY INCLUDED IN THE FULL LESSON
Difficulty Level: Intermediate
Barre Chords: No
Thumb-Over Chords: No
Playing Style: Strummed (chorus). Picked notes with a pick (intro & verse)
The lesson covers the acoustic guitar parts for verse and chorus which will enable you to play a solo singer-guitarist performance of the song. As always, it’s taught as-played on the original record, although I teach it on a 6-string instead of the 12-string that’s played on the original. The lesson will work on both types of guitar.
The complete file contains a lesson video, a performance play thru video, full tabs, chords and lyrics. You’ll receive a link to download the lesson which will download as a zip file of 130 Mb containing all the lesson content.
