Eagles
On the Border
1974

I guess you could call this a little disco-country
off the On the Border album.  This is a pretty cool
song with a great chorus, written by my three favorite
Eagles members.  So I'm gonna jam on this, and I hope
you guys do too.


GUITAR 1:   Electric, plays distorted parts in intro and chorus,
                plus half the verse riff.
GUITAR 2:   Electric with a funky effect, plays the stuff behind
                the verses and does the solo.
GUITAR 3:   Rhythm electric playing chords during intro and chorus,
                plus half of verse riff.

Here's the part behind the verse (GUITAR 2).  I have no idea what
effect he has on there, but I think there's a little distortion
and maybe a little wah.  Anywhere you see RIFF, GUITAR 1 and 3 play
the riff shown here.

   Cruisin down the center...

Here's the riff heard during the verse.
GUITAR 1 plays the top.
GUITAR 3 plays the bottom.

Now, we get to the chorus.  GUITAR 1 and 3
are going here, with GUITAR 1 playing the
tab below, and GUITAR 3 playing the chords.
Right after this, they go into another verse
and chorus, then they go to the bridge.

During the second verse, the last part doesn't happen,
it goes right into the bridge.


Here's the bridge.  A lot of what you hear
is bass, and I haven't notated that.
GUITAR 1 and 3 play the bottome line
    (with divisi where indicated).
GUITAR 2 plays the top.

Now we go to the chorus, and then to the solo.
The two measures I have here repeat all the way
till the end, it finally just fades out.  Play
around with this a little, cause of course
Leadon does:
