Hotel California by The Eagles | solos
An electric guitar lesson on how to play the guitar solo parts to "Hotel California" by The Eagles.
One of the greatest rock guitar solos of all time, it's extremely well written and played by Don Felder and Joe Walsh. It's a great example of how to use chord tones in your leads, something that all the great guitarists do.
It's an excellent solo to learn for bending and vibrato too. If you don't have your bends in pitch and your vibrato right on the money, you're going to sound like a dying cat on this solo!
The harmonized arpeggios at the end are also a really great thing to learn as it will open up the neck for a lot of players and help them to see the relationships of the chord shapes and the arpeggios.
It's in three parts altogether, the performance is the first video, then part one and part two.
I've put annotations in them so you can navigate around the three videos easier.
Good luck with it, it's not overly fast, but to play it well with, in tune bends and vibrato and with feel will take a while.
I hope you enjoy the lesson. Cheers
