Date: Tue, 19 Sep 1995 20:34:13 -0400 From: (Art Bai) Subject: Hotel California Guitar Tab - The Easier Version I just thought I'd post a somewhat easier for playing version of the Eagles' "Hotel California": this might be the perfect choice for the beginners who happen to be crazy about the song. So here it is. - HOTEL "CALIFORNIA" - Am On a dark desert highway Em Cool wind in my hair - G Warm smell of coletus D Rising up thru the air F Up ahead in the distance C I saw a shimmer of light; Dm My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, Em - E I had to stop for the night - And there she stood in the doorway, I heard the mission bell; And I was thinking to myself, "This could be heaven and this could be hell..." Then she lit up a candle And she showed me the way, There were voices down the corridor, And I heard'em say - F C "Welcome to the Hotel "California", Dm Such a lovely place, Am Such a lovely face, Em- E -F C Plenty of room in the Hotel "California", Dm Any time of year (Any time of year) E You can find it here..." (all the other verses and the chorus part are no different; just follow the model above.) Her mind is tiffany-twisted, She got a Mersedes-Benz; She got a lot, a lot of pretty boys That she calls friends How they dance in the cortyard - Sweet summer sweat; Some dance to remember, Some dance to forget... So I called up the Captain, "Please, bring me my wine!" (He said) - "We haven't had that spirit here since Nineteen sixty-nine... But still those voices are comin' from fa-ar away, Wake you up in the middle of the night, Just to hear'em say, "Welcome to the Hotel "California', Such a lovely place, Such a lovely face, Living it up in the Hotel "California". What a nice surprise, When you're out of lies..." Mirrors on the ceiling, They drink champaign on ice, (And she said,) "We are all just prisoners here Of our own device; In the Master's chambers They gathered for the fiest - They stab it with their steely knives, But they just can't kill the beast!" Last thing I remember - I was running for the door, I tried to get my passage back To the place I was before, "Relax," - said the nightman,- "We are all programmed to receive, You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave!..." The solo part, which as you know takes three thirds of a song, I don't know about: I have figured if you're a beginner, forget 'bout the solo part. Eitherway I did at the time.
