Hotel California

Here is our "Unplugged" arrangement of the Eagles' 1977 number-one hit Hotel California. Our unique "Unplugged" arrangements are created for one acoustic guitar and one voice. The verse is one of the great minor progression studies around. The opening verse progression to this song uses a minor folk progression (Im-V). In this arrangement, I have added a descending bass line to the verse and an ascending bass line to the chorus. The Eagles' recording uses a twelve- string guitar capoed at the seventh fret using the following open position chords: Verse = Em-B7-Dsus2-A9/C#-C-G-Am7-B7 and Chorus = C-G-B7-Em-C-G-Am-B7.
