			     HOW LONG - The Eagles
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: woega
Email: woega@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard

This is my interpretation of the ENTIRE song, lyrics, chords,
tabs including the INTRO, all RIFFS, the SOLO and the OUTRO.

I've tried to be as accurate as I can, but I'm open for suggestions :)

I've included the riffs and the lyrics alternating, so the lyrics should not
be linked to the tabs directly underneath.

This is pretty good, I think this is the best version on here, no doubt.

You could've tabbed out the palm muted power chords you can hear in the song though, but if you know the fretboard it won't be to difficult to figure out yourself.

the palm muted chords are played in a "mute, mute, open" rhythm i think
