In this song tutorial I'll teach you how to play the classic song "Hotel California," as made famous by The Eagles. This is one of the most quintessential guitar songs of all time, packed one rippin' solo after another, harmonized rhythm and lead parts, great acoustic guitar parts, and a seemingly never ending stream of cool ideas.

To recreate all these parts live you would need an army of guitar players, so this lesson is obviously going to be modified; but it's really cool to know and understand how this classic song is built up - guitar part for guitar part. First we'll breakdown the classic intro with the 12-string guitar part. Then I'll break down the two driving rhythm parts in the verses, the chorus with the unison lines and awesome lead fills, the verses with the harmonized guitar parts doing call and response, the epic solos, and how to get your guitar tones just right for this song. There's a lot to learn, so pack your bags and get ready!
