  1. That is a beautiful guitar!

  2. My friend? When u start your last section of solo, are u starting off the 14th. Of the 1st. String or is it the 14 the. Of the 2 nd. String? B/c it sounds as if you say its the first string ,but then u start off the 14th.of the 2nd. String so just curious since they both sound good starting off either one. TKS.?

  18. for someone that speeds through this you make it so simple and clear even for a noob like me 🙂

  19. it should be up to Don Felder if this is removed since he wrote it. Apparently the rest of the eagles were never a bar band and played other people's music ever before, they must be that righteous to have never played something they don't own before. And the YouTube policy is that if you play music owned by someone else the owner gets compensated by YouTube for that. That's my understanding.
