What happened here? the video just cut off halfway through your sentence – unresolved, so to speak!

    Hi Chris, for some weird reason it seems the video cut off about 2 seconds before the end. Not sure what happened there, but it’s fixed now!

Tremendous learning opportunities are your courses. Would you please help me figure out exactly what you played in the into to B minor…this course. I think I can see it but I can’t make it sound like you do!
Thank you!

    Hi Bill, I did a little lesson covering most of that little progression – you can find that here:

    In that lesson, I was strumming instead of picking, but you can interpret it however you want. The most important thing is figuring out the fingerings, and then you can take it from there.

The Eagles recorded “Hotel California” in B Minor in 1976. The song was 6:30 minutes long on the Album and includes a 2:12 minute guitar solo by Don Felder using a doubleneck Gibson EDS 1275 and Joe Walsh using a Fender Telecaster. I didn’t think much of the B Minor and associated chords until we moved to California and I actually learned how to play the song. It’s actually nice to play once a person gets comfortable with the chords changes:

Intro/2X & Verses – Bm, F#, A, E, G, D, Em, F#
Chorus – G, D, F#7, Bm, G, D, Em, F#
Outro/2X – Bm, F#, A, E, G, D, Em, F#, (The Sheet music ended on F#, but I add Bm, because it sounds like it should be there).
