Hey guys, this version hasn't been posted but it sounds pretty good to me. Leave a comment regarding corrections
and/or questions.

Few things:

FINGER PICKING
This song could be played with a variation of finger picking and strumming, or strumming alone.
I've included a simple finger picking pattern which sounds familiar to the solo in the original guitar version
below for anyone interested. The pattern is pretty much the chords in the verses picked out. I usually finger
pick the pattern twice as the intro and then I follow up with 
strumming the chords.
STRUMMING & RHYTHM
My strumming pattern for the Verse is D-D-U--U-D-U(2x per chords Bm, A, G, and Em)
As for the chords Gb7, E7, and D I play D-D-U--U-D-U-D while allowing the string to ring on the last down.

Verse:
Bm                        Gb7
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair  
A                      E7
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
G                         D
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light 
Em                                       Gb7
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim I had to stop for the night 
 
Bm                              Gb7
There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell 
A                              E7
And I was thinking to myself, "This could be Heaven or this could be Hell" 
G                         D
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way 
Em                                    Gb7
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say...
 
 
Chorus:
G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California 
      Gb7                                   Bm               D
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face 
G                               D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California  
    Em                                      Gb7                                    
Any time of year (Any time of year) You can find it here
 
 
Verse:
Bm                           Gb7
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
A                          E7
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls friends 
G                                D
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat. 
Em                        Gb7
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget
  
Bm                           Gb7
So I called up the Captain, "Please bring me my wine" 
A                                               E7
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine" 
G                                   D
And still those voices are calling from far away, 
Em                                     Gb7
Wake you up in the middle of the night Just to hear them say... 
 
 
Chorus:

G                        D
Welcome to the Hotel California 
      Gb7                                   Bm               D
Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face 
G                               D
Plenty of room at the Hotel California  
    Em                                      Gb7                                    
Any time of year (Any time of year) You can find it here
 
 
Verse:
Bm                       Gb7
Mirrors on the ceiling, The pink champagne on ice 
A                                            E7
And she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device" 
G                             D
And in the master's chambers, They gathered for the feast 
Em                                     Gb7
They stab it with their steely knives, But they just can't kill the beast

Bm                    Gb7
Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door 
A                              E7
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before 
G                             D
"Relax, " said the night man, "We are programmed to receive. 
Em                                   Gb7
You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave!"
