On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim, I had to stop for the night

Learn How to Play Eagles Hotel California Guitar Chords

 

eagles hotel california guitar tabDo you love the sound of the guitar, and dream about being able to play your favorite tunes on one? Have you already purchased a guitar, and learned a bit about playing it, or are you shopping for a guitar that you can use to fulfill your musical dreams? Is the classic Eagles’ song Hotel California one of your favorites, and something that you desire to play on your guitar? If so, then you can learn how to play Hotel California chords on guitar so that you can entertain yourself and others with your musical contribution to any gathering.

 

First of all, if you do not have any previous guitar training, it is a good idea to take some lessons. You can either pay someone for private lessons in your local community, or use some of the great free and low-cost videos and tutorials that are available on the Internet for people like you. There are several highly skilled guitar players who have extensive collections of instruction that can be quite beneficial for learning all that you need to about this popular instrument and how to play it well.

 

If you have yet to purchase a guitar, you will need to decide what type you wish to buy. While you should not spend hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars on a guitar if you are just starting out with it, you do not want to purchase one that is of low quality. Investing in a good guitar is vital if you want to learn how to play well. Cheap makes and models do not produce the proper sounds, which can be incredibly frustrating, particularly for beginners who may believe that the poor sound is due to their lack of skill, rather than the instrument itself being the problem. You may be able to get a decent price on a used guitar, but have someone who is an expert in the field check it out first to ensure that there are not any troubles with it that you do not yet know how to search for.

 

Then, you can find tutorials online that will show you how to play Hotel California chords on the guitar, along with any other songs that you wish to learn so that you can play them when hanging out with family and friends. Remember that it takes plenty of practice, so go slowly at first as you learn the chords and how to move your fingers seamlessly from one set of notes to another. If you are not yet accustomed to playing this musical instrument, be prepared for sore fingertips in the beginning as a result of pressing the thin strings on the guitar.

 

You can learn how to play the classic song Hotel California by the Eagles, as well as other songs from your favorites list, if you purchase a good guitar and practice your lessons each day until you have mastered it.
