for the 12 string guitar, is it capoed to the 7th fret?
or is it not? because some tabs say it is some tabs say it isnt. playing with the capo is a breeze and w/o is pretty difficult. anyone have any ideas?

well...I play it on a 6 string but with capo on 7th fret.
and I'm sure the capo should be there.

5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Just try to do it by ear dude, it will be alot more rewarding, and will give you pitch perfect ears!

Do whichever. If you can manage it without the capo obviously that gives you the flexibility to play some of the other licks below the 7th fret. You could change the chord voicings a little to make it easier - you don't have to play it exactly like the record.

Yes, the 12-string part is capo-ed on the 7th fret.

My cover band does Hotel California like so:

Me: 12-string electric, capo-ed on the 7th fret (through intro & first few verses)
Guitar 2: Descending melody lines & fills on electric
Guitar 3: 6-string acoustic strumming

Also, I play the upper register fills on the 12-string during the 2nd & 3rd verses before switching to 6-string so that I can come in with the 2nd & 4th solos. Then, the other guitar player and I do the harmony leads at the end.

Definitely capo-ed at the 7th fret.

Don Henley wanted to change the key of the song, for singing.
I don't remember if the capo was added or moved from another fret.

don't you have a bassist?

and to the ts: just capo and take it off when you don't need it anymore

Of course... we also have a drummer, a keyboard player, and two lead vocalists. The Bassist is busy playing the Bass part
