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 musicians do.
It's an excellent solo to learn for bending and vibrato too. Getting your bends in pitch and your vibrato right on the money on this one is vital.
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 between the chord shapes and the arpeggios.
There's a lot going in this solo. Depending on where you're at in your development, mastering it will drastically improve not only your playing, but your overall knowledge of the guitar.
I hope that you get something from the lesson and that it helps you to learn this seventies Eagles classic. Cheers
