Hotel California 
(There are so many attemps to this song out there. So Here's a correct one.) 
 
This first part is the intro. It is repeated throughout the song 
(except during the Chorus). 
 
GUITAR 1 (12-string electric, capo on 7th fret) 
A 7 means open string, so it is easier to read. 
These are easier if you realize that the chords they outline are: 
Em	B7	Dsus2	E9	C	G	Am7	B7

In all, Don Felder, Joe Walsh and Glenn Frey managed to fit eight different 
guitars in for this song. GUITAR 3 plays the cool "chicka" chords you hear 
during the verses.  Listen closely and you can pick this part out.  Use 
fret-hand muting on the following chords to get the percussive sound.  In 
other words, don't push the strings down on the fretboard, just touch the 
strings so they can't vibrate much.  In addition, palm-mute them to give a 
sharper sound.

GUITARS 4 and 5 (distorted electrics) play chord tones in 3rds 
during the verses.  GUITAR 4 plays upper voicing, GUITAR 5 plays 
the lower voicing.  All the while, the 12-string continues 
playing the intro chords.

This is the Chorus.  GUITAR 1 strums the following chords 
(instead of picking them): 
C	G	B7	Em 
C	G	Am	B7 
GUITAR 4 & 5 play the following bit:

Now, here's the reason for so many guitars.  On the "So I called up the Captain" 
verse, GUITAR 4 & 5 repeat the part from the last verse, while GUITAR 7 & 8 
(distorted electrics) introduce this "answer" harmony.  The 12-string is (still) 
playing the verse chords. 
 
     So I called up the Captain

The rest of the song repeats parts I've already tabbed.  If you've 
got the tape or CD, I suggest you listen to it while looking 
at the tab to find these parts. Now the solos.  These are tough, 
so practice a lot and look at the rhythm I have laid out so you 
can get a feel for how it's supposed to sound.

Wasted time 
 
Verse 1: 
C			 Fm6 
    Well, baby, there you stand 
C/G				       F	G7 
    with your little head down in your hand. 
F	       Am7		  Dm		  Am7 
Oh my God, you can't believe it's happening again. 
     F			    Am7		     Dm		    F	  G7 
Your baby's gone and you're all alone and it looks like the end. 
 
Verse 2: 
(repeat verse 1 chords above) 
And you're back out on the street 
and you're tryin' to remember. 
How do you start it over? You don't know if you can. 
You don't care much for a stranger's touch but you can't hold your man. 
 
Chorus: 
Am			  E/G# 
  You never thought you'd be alone 
G		  D/F# 
this far down the line 
    F			       Em 
and I know what's been on your mind, 
	Dm		    F  G7  C 
you're afraid it's all been wasted time. 
 
Bridge: 
Bm7	       E7		   Am 
    The autumn leaves have got you thinking 
Bm7	      E7		  Am 
    about the first time that you fell. 
Bm7	       E7	  Am	    C/G 
    You didn't love the boy too much, no no, 
        F   C/G	       Fm6	F    G  G7 
you just loved the boy too well____  er-well 
 
Verse 3: 
(same as verse 1) 
  So you live from day to day 
and you dream about tomorrow, oh. 
And the hours go by like minutes and the shadows come to stay. 
So ya take a little something to make them go away. 
 
Chorus: 
(same as above Chorus) 
   And I could have done so many things, baby, 
   if I could only stop my mind 
   from wond'rin' what I left behind 
   and from worryin' bout this wasted time. 
 
Ab			       C 
Ooh, another love has come and gone. 
Ab				C 
Ooh, and the years keep rushing on. 
    F		      Am7	     Dm			Am7 
I remember what you told me before you went out on your own: 
	    F		    Am7		Dm		G7 
sometimes to keep it together we got to leave it alone. 
 
Chorus: 
(same as above) 
So you can get on with your search, baby, 
and I can get on with mine. 
And maybe someday we will find 
	Dm	      F  G7  C	   Am7	F  C/G 
that it wasn't really wasted time. 
 
Ab		C  Am7  F  C/G 
 
Ab	Fm6	C

This is the first part of the second verse.  It just adds the slide-downs. 
After this part, they add the chicka to GUITAR 2, just scratch your strings 
before playing the power chords.  GUITAR 1 repeats this figure with the 
slide-downs in the second part. 
 
   Some people..                        I think you..                  You're

Then the Chorus comes in again, and they do some repetitions 
which are easy to figure out, and the end looks something like this: 
 
  got?                            What kind of love have you got?

These are the lyrics: 
 
What kind of love have you got? 
You should be home, but you're not 
A room full of noise and dangerous boys 
still makes you thirsty and hot 
 
I heard about you and that man 
There's just one thing I don't understand 
You say he's a liar and he put out your fire 
How come you still got his gun in your hand? 
 
Victim of love , I see a broken heart 
You got your stories to tell 
Victim of love, it's such an easy part 
and you know how to play it so well 
 
Some people never come clean 
I think you know what I mean 
You're walkin' the wire, pain and desire 
Looking for love in between 
 
Tell me your secrets, I'll tell you mine 
This ain't no time to be cool 
And tell all your girlfriends, 
you "been around the world" friends 
that talk is for losers and fools 
 
Victim of love, I see a broken heart 
I could be wrong, but I'm not 
Victim of love, we're not so far apart 
Show me, what kind of love have you got? 
 
Victim of love, you're just a victim of love 
I could be wrong , but I'm not 
Victim of love, now you're a victim of love 
What kind of love have you got? 
What kind of love have you got? 
What kind of love have you got?

Try and love again 
 
Intro: D G D G 
 
D 
When you're out there on your own 
                        G 
Where your memories can find you 
                    D 
Like a circle goes around 
 
You were lost until you found out 
                  G 
What it all comes down to 
G      Bm       A7              D 
One by one, the lonely feelings come 
G      Bm        A7           D 
Day by day, they slowly fade away 
 
Ooh, the look was in her eyes 
You never know what might be found there 
She was dancing right in time 
And the moves she made so fine 
Like the music that surrounds her 
Should I stay or go? I really want to know 
Would I lose or win if I try and love again? 
 
(Chorus) 
G                           D 
Oh, I'm gonna try and love again 
G                           D 
Oh, I'm gonna try and love again 
G                           D 
Oh, I'm gonna try and love 
 
(solo) 
 
Right or wrong, what's done is done 
It's only moments that you borrow 
But the thoughts will linger on 
Of the lady and her song 
When the sun comes up tomorrow 
Well it might take years to see through all these tears 
Don't let go, when you find that you will know 
 
(Chorus several times and fade) 
 
I hope that this is all correct-- I'm not sure about the Bm's. 
If they don't work, try D instead.

The last resort 
 
F             Bb           C 
She came from Providence 
C                F 
The one in Rhode Island 
F                   Bb            C 
Where the old world shadows hang 
C            F 
Heavy in the air 
F              Bb                 C 
She packed her hopes and dreams 
C          F 
Like a refugee 
F           Bb            C 
Just as her father came 
C          F        F F F F+ 
Across the sea 
 
 
She heard about a place 
People were smiling 
Spoke about the red man's ways 
How they loved the land 
They came from everywhere 
To the Great Divide 
Seeking a place to stand 
Or a place to hide 
 
Down in the crowded bars 
Out for a good time 
Can't wait to tell you all 
What it's like up there 
They called it paradise 
I don't know why 
Somebody laid the mountains low 
While the town got high 
 
 
F F F F F+ 
Dm Dm Dm Dm Dm* 
F F F F F+ 
Dm Dm Dm Dm Dm* 
 
When the chilly winds blew down 
Across the canyon 
Through the canyons of the coast 
To the malibus 
Where the pretty people played 
Hungry for power 
To light their neon ways 
Give 'em things to do 
 
Some rich man came and raped the land 
Nobody caught him 
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes 
And Jesus people bought them 
They called it paradise 
The place to be 
They watched the hazy sun 
Sinking in the sea 
 
(Key Change:  changes from F to Ab) 
 
Ab               Db          Eb 
You can leave it all behind 
Eb         Ab 
Sail to Lahaina 
Ab                     Db        Eb 
Just like the missionaries did 
Eb             Ab 
So many years ago 
Ab                  Db            Eb 
They even brought a neon sign 
Eb         Ab 
Jesus is Coming 
Ab                      Db            Eb 
Brought the white man's burden down 
Eb                      Ab        Ab Ab Ab Ab+ 
Brought the white man's reign 
 
 
And we'll provide the grand design 
What is yours and what is mine 
'Cuz there is no more new frontier 
We have got to make it here 
We satisfied our endlees needs 
And justified our bloody deeds 
In the name of destiny 
And in the name of God 
 
And you can see them there 
On sunday morning 
Stand up and sing about 
What it's like up there 
They called it paradise 
I don't know why 
To call someplace paradise 
Kiss it goodbye 
 
Ab Ab Ab Ab Ab+
