Notes.
1. An early demo of the song exists and clearly reveals the 'Open E' tuning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qeMnRVHZf0
2. Regarding the song's square-dance theme, [Leng] suggests that folk dancing's cycle of about-turns and to-and-fro movement reminded Harrison of the Beatles' "seemingly endless, and pointless, legal orbits around one another" in the early 70's.

VERSE 1:
Am E7
On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair,
Gsus2 D9
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air.
F C
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light.
Dm7
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim,
E
I had to stop for the night.

VERSE 2:
Am E7
There she stood in the doorway, I heard the mission bell.
G Gsus2 G13sus4/E D9
And I was thinking to myself,"This could be Heaven or this could be Hell?"
F C
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way.
Dm7
There were voices down the corridor,
E
I thought I heard them say:


CHORUS 1:
F C
"Welcome to the Hotel California,
E7
Such a lovely place!" (Such a lovely place),
Am7 G/D
Such a lovely face,
F C
Plenty of room at the Hotel California,
Dm
Any time of year (Any time of year),
E
You can find it here.

Am E7
Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends.
Gsus2 D9
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys that she calls friends,
F C
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat.
Dm7 E
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget.


VERSE 4:
Am E7
So I called up the Captain,"Please bring me my wine".
Gsus2 D9
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine".
F C
An' still those voices are calling from far away,
Dm
Wake you up in the middle of the night,
E
Just to hear them say:


CHORUS 2:
F C
"Welcome to the Hotel California,
E7
Such a lovely place!" (Such a lovely place),
Am7 G/D
Such a lovely face.
F C
They're livin' it up at the Hotel California,
Dm
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise),
E
Bring your alibis.


VERSE 5:
Am E7
Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice.
Gsus2 D9
"Ah" she said, "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device".
F C
And in the master's chambers,they gathered for the feast.
Dm7
They stab it with their steely knives,
E7
But they just can't kill the beast.


VERSE 6:
Am E7
Last thing I remember, I was running for the door.
Gsus2 D9
I had to find the passage back, to the place I was before.
F C
"Relax", said the night man, "We are programmed to receive.
Dm
You can check-out any time you like,
E
But you can never leave! ".

The Beatles: Fixing A Hole

Current mood: disappointed

Another weird factoid, this TAB was rejected over a week ago. Despite every second day requests to UG Tabs review, it's still sitting as rejected? So what happens in the Summer holiday season in the USA, ...does everyone go to ground?

I really hope that it goes re-reviewed, soon? It took some time to develop and it's 'notialy' correct. Let's see what happens? Otherwise, it'll sit in the 'archive' cupboard!

[End]


Notes.
1. This version arose from an attempt to harmonise the melody on an acoustic without barre chords. It differs structurally from any previous versions in that it matches the distinct three chord outro on the Instrumental. It also adds some extra texture to the latter part of each Verse and adds a haunting quality to the Bridges.
2. The transitional chords 'Dm7-Dm6-G7/D' are successively created by lifting off one finger at a time from the three-fingered 'Dm7'.

Notes.
1. Although this song was written for Ringo, it was sung by John who alleges that he "owed much to Paul" who was stronger on the guitar. http://www.beatlesbible.com/songs/i-dont-want-to-s poil-the-party/
2. The hallmarks of Lennon's legacy of banjo-style guitar chords are apparent, especially in this songs fingering of 'G to G7' & 'Fadd9 to D7sus4'.

Notes.
1."I have a nice house and it's the house that 'Girls on the Avenue' built!" - Richard Clapton (2010). http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedd ed&v=U--PaPgwmYU
2. Clapton's commercial breakthrough came with his single, "Girls on the Avenue", (originally) issued in January 1975. Although Festival had little faith in the song—initially releasing it as the B-side of "Travelling Down the Castlereagh"—it was picked up by radio and became a major hit, reaching the No. 4 spot on the Australian Kent Music Report Singles Chart in March.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Clapton#Girls _on_the_Avenue
