About this tab version
My Hotel California tab shows only Joe Walsh's part of the guitar harmony voicing on a line, I really only made this for my student who wanted to learn Walsh's part. Its more helpful and easier to read when there is only one part per staff. Maybe if it worked for her, it'll help someone else too. Was this info helpful? Yes No
