Hotel California seems to be one of those songs that forms the songbook for all beginner guitar players. This lesson introduces a new strumming technique so may be a bit hard if you’re just starting out. If this is the case for you, you can just follow the chords in the lesson and start with a strumming try out you already know. Once you’ve got that down then look to add the strumming as shown. Delight in, and Keep Playing!
