HEy, even though it sounds right, it is wrong.

You have brought this up to high, the actual chords are

Am,E,G,D,F,C,Dm,E Main Riff
F,C,Am,E,F,C,Dm,E Chorus

That's the real way it's played, your's was just a three stepps up too high
+2   December 26 2002, 12:00 am by bizz105 |
what are you talking about? its the 3 steps too high, i own the acoustic and electric version sheet music and they are both under B
+5   December 27 2002, 12:00 am by EpitaphMan440 |
Amazing! Great work! (and the chords are right)I wish i could give it higher then a 5!
+5   January 11 2003, 12:00 am by logie48 |
Warm_Machine what u on about 3 steps.....the chords are perfect
February 26 2003, 12:00 am by Fretallica |
so...for those who own the actual music that you bought from the store...is this the same?.................i hate learning the song the wrong way......especially solos.....
July 29 2003, 12:00 am by m/(>_<)m/ |
the chords are perfect haven't checked the rest, people are sayin it's good so i'll have a go, i've gotta learn this for a jammin session that i go to so it should be fun lol

this song is actually played capoed at the 7th fret with a 12 string acoustic guitar

This song uses a capo at 7th fret on a 12 string. Using chord positions Em,B7,D without first string,A with a few little picking parts,C,G,Am,B7
-15   April 23 2004, 12:00 am by aawiegardt |
One other way to play it is;

[Bm]On a dark desert highway, [F#]cool wind in my hair

^^^ switch the [Bm] for a Cm7 and the [F#] with a GM7

Just gives a little bit of a different sound... play whichever you prefer.
-16   May 22 2004, 12:00 am by ImBrianFellow |
it sounds ok, but it's not correct.... buy the sheet music if you want the real thing

AWESOME tab dude. sounds perfect
+6   December 20 2005, 12:05 pm by fthehurricanes |

Great tab. The chords are absolutely correct. Some people may be confused about the capo. The intro guitar is copoed at fret 7 and the chords are Em, B7, etc. If you play without the capo the chords in this tab will be the same thing. (Em up 7 frets=Bm)
+1   January 5 2006, 05:45 pm by mistaman |
how are you supposed to play it with a capo on the 7th when theres notes on the 5th fret?

i saw the eagles live at there farewell tour 1 in twikenam and there is no capo

great tab btw
June 30 2006, 03:20 pm by luisaceo |
great tab, great work, just that, even though it sounds ok, it isnt 100% correct, it is played with the capo on the 7th fret and there seems to be somekind of mistake in the solos, fantastic tab any way, i would not be able of doing it any better
July 8 2006, 07:53 pm by LongLiveRock628 |
great tab. i just wish it has those small licks that are played during the chorus when the electric comes in

September 16 2006, 02:35 pm by Constantine |
On the live version on Youtube, It's played with a Capo on the seventh fret on his twelve string neck... How exactly will I be getting down to the 5th frets when I've got the capo on?

Yes, This tab will work, but it's not how he plays it.

no he really plays it with a capo on the 32nd fret on a 12 fret guitar that has 17 necks and 3 bodies, and the solo is played using 4 picks simotaneously -.-

sick tab, just take it

one word: wonderful
November 11 2006, 08:46 pm by Adalek Polska |
yeah, me again, i jst made a small adjustment, i believe that instead pf F#, it should be F#7 . This is just a small adjustment, which i believe makes the song have a stronger vib, but it just maybe my guitar out of tune :P
November 17 2006, 03:27 pm by homerm06 |

November 18 2006, 03:34 am by Necros87 |
this song was played (live at least) with 1 12 string accoustic (tabbed) and 2 electrics, a bass and 2 drums, and some of thier other songs have 4 guitars

All a capo does is change the key... any song can be played with or without one, it doesn't mean it is wrong
February 11 2007, 09:57 pm by Maggot66 |
Excellent!
+4   February 14 2007, 06:45 pm by kylebbb |
so for those of you who are all like, capo on the 7th fret, the chords are written so that they are the same key as if you were playing the other chords with the capo. sweet tab man, ace.
February 19 2007, 08:00 am by DJaye |
Excellent TAB. In the original key, and not capo'd to the 7th fret, what a joke those TABS are. This is awesome.

Nice tab m8 ;D I rly like it!
June 16 2007, 04:35 pm by aeirom1 |
ok first of all the f# should be f#7. second of all, the E should be E9. the E9 is x76777. easy mistake. work on the end riff. but otherwise, good tab!

July 2 2007, 08:29 pm by guitar_pro23 |
unfortunately, this tab is not correct but is good, look in the issue of guitar player dedicated solely to the eagles and look for hotel cali...
the tabs are:

Am, E7, G, D, F, C, Dm, E for the verses
F, C, E7, Dm, E for the chorus
by the way, a capo on the 2nd fret
+5   July 9 2007, 07:41 am by marblink |
without a capo, it would be a Bm, F# and so on dude.
+1   July 26 2007, 01:18 pm by nevuking |
Guitar pro23....was that a joke? Adding a capo to the second, then playing those chords would be the same as the chords in the tab.

great tab, 5*.
BTW ppl, professional guitarists quite often play their songs more than one way. They may use a capo one day and not the next. You can do both you know.
October 18 2007, 08:00 pm by The4thHorsemen |
damn... lots of people obviously don't understand how a capo works or something.... if you put a capo on the seventh fret and play an "E" chord it's actually a B, it's the same as a barre chord.

anyways, good tab, the rhythm for the picking parts is really screwing with my head.

November 30 2008, 07:50 pm by benji99 |
the solo may sound right buts its not very accurate, not dissing or anything it sounds great, but, for a more accurate version of the solo i would look at the guitar pro tabs. I learnt that one and i played along with the solo and it sounds exactly the same. This one has quite a few mistakes if you play along with the song you can hear them.

I saw another guy posting these chords, when I tried them they sounded perfect. They're not so different from the chords in this tab, just a tone more or less here and there.

Verse:
Bm | F#7 | Asus2 | E9 | G | D | Em7 | F#7

Chorus:
G | D | F#7 | Bm | G | D | Em7 | F#7

Taking them around the 7th fret gives the right sound.
Bm F#7 Asus2 E9 G D Em7

I just came across Don Henley of the Eagles absolutely schooling this cocky music critic. I thought I would share it because his response is amazing:

In a 2009 interview, Plain Dealer music critic John Soeder asked Don Henley this about the lyrics:

On "Hotel California," you sing: "So I called up the captain / 'Please bring me my wine' / He said, 'We haven't had that spirit here since 1969.'" I realize I'm probably not the first to bring this to your attention, but wine isn't a spirit. Wine is fermented; spirits are distilled. Do you regret that lyric?

Henley responded,

"Thanks for the tutorial and, no, you're not the first to bring this to my attention—and you're not the first to completely misinterpret the lyric and miss the metaphor. Believe me, I've consumed enough alcoholic beverages in my time to know how they are made and what the proper nomenclature is. But that line in the song has little or nothing to do with alcoholic beverages. It's a sociopolitical statement. My only regret would be having to explain it in detail to you, which would defeat the purpose of using literary devices in songwriting and lower the discussion to some silly and irrelevant argument about chemical processes."

WOW. I don't play the intro like that but haven't really tried the whole thing, I just pick around the chords, but your's might be right. Everytime I play the chords, inbetween the E and the G I play on the low E string:

|--0--2--3--| then the G chord.

Awesome tab m8.

can i use a capo on 7th fret while intro??

Great tab, even though I think the last few measures of the intro aren't quite what The Eagles play; but it sounds good anyway. For the chords I'd suggest you play Am/E/G/D/F/C/Dm/E and put the capo 2nd.
January 26 2013, 12:51 am by pandorasbox359 |
actually i thought the riff was good but the chords were wrong
verse: em/b7/d/a/c/g/am/b7
chorus: c/g/b7/em c/g/am/b7

I don't like the intro. I prefer to pay it with a capo in the 7th fret. This intro doesn't sound like the original one. But the chords are dead on.

Very nice although the eagles they play it like this :

Em 022000 B7 021202 D5 000230 A9 042000 C 032010
G 320003 Am7 002010

ATTENTION CAPO on 7TH FRET

INTRO Em B7 D5 A9 C G Am7 B7

Em
On a dark desert highway,
B7
Cool wind in my hair
D5
Warm smell of colitas
A9
Rising up through the air
C
Up ahead in the distance,
G
I saw a shimmering light
Am7
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
B7
I had to stop for the night
Em
There she stood in the doorway;
B7
I heard the mission bell
D5
And I was thinking to myself
A9
This could be heaven or this could be hell
C
Then she lit up a candle,
G
And she showed me the way
Am7
There were voices down the corridor;
B7
I thought I heard them say?

C G
Welcome to the Hotel California
Am7
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
B7
Such a lovely face
C G
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Am7
Any time of year (Any time of year)
B7
You can find it here

Em
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted,
B7
She got the Mercedes bends
D5
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
A9
She calls friends
C
How they dance in the courtyard,
G
Sweet summer sweat
Am7
Some dance to remember,
B7
Some dance to forget
Em
So I called up the Captain,
B7
"Please bring me my wine"
D5
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here

Since nineteen sixty nine"
C
And still those voices
G
are calling from far away,
Am7
Wake you up in the middle of the night
B7
Just to hear them say...

C G
Welcome to the Hotel California
Am7
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
B7
Such a lovely face
C G
They living' it up at the Hotel California
Am7
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
B7
Bring your alibis

Em
Mirrors on the ceiling,
B7
The pink champagne on ice
D5
And she said "We are all just prisoners here,
A9
Of our own device"
C
And in the master's chambers,
G
They gathered for the feast
Am7
They stab it with their steely knives,
B7
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
B7
Running for the door

D5
I had to find the passage back
A9
To the place I was before
C
"Relax,? said the night man,
G
"We are programmed to receive.
Am7
You can check-out any time you like,
B7
But you can never leave! "

Should have a capo on the second fret
February 20 2014, 07:16 pm by floyd-pinkerton |
poorly put together
March 31 2014, 03:07 pm by vincenzo.zd |
Great tab. Elite. The intro has only one wrong note; in the second division. the 11 on G string is supposed to be a 10. I shall post a correction.
March 31 2014, 03:52 pm by vincenzo.zd |
This is the second division:


E|------9----------9----------| I
B|--11-----11-------------11--| N
G|--10---------10-----10------| T
D|--8-------------------------| R
A|----------------------------| O
E|----------------------------|
