Default Hotel California - original fingerstyle

I know, it's been done so many times, but I had to have a go. I think the solo worked out quite well, that starts at 2:58.
I borrowed Kelly Valleau's idea of using the capo just for the solo. It's just one of those tunes that's such a pleasure to play.

Thank you all very much. I have the tab arranged in Tabledit just for the intro and the solo if you're interested. It can be turned into PDF format.

Having played this often at venues for the last 8 years its nice to see a good arrangement with cool voicings (which I've been neglecting!) Great job

Really nice.

Keeping in mind that I only have two thumbs, that’s a three thumbs up arrangement and performance👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Default Capo

Thanks for a great performance. Your idea to use the capo worked out well, and your filming with different camera angles was nice. That song never gets old and your arrangement is unique and beautiful. Thanks!
