What parts do you mean? I'm not aware of horns on the original recording; when I've played it out I just played a "guide tone line" and took a solo. If you have two guitars playing licks there's not much room on that song.........daryl

yeah, I dunno what parts you mean, I've never heard a sax in that song either, but just make something up to play in the background (as long as its not too busy). Or work with your band to rearrange the song so you can fit a more active sax part into it.

If I never hear that song again it will be too soon, it was absolutely flogged to death on commercial radio in the 80's, just the mere mention of it makes me feel like finding a bar

...as opposed to the absence of its being mentioned - which still makes you feel like finding a bar. :twisted:

Anyone know where to get parts of Hotel California for tenor sax???
Not to be a name dropper, but I played with Don Felder in my first rock band in Gainesville, Florida. He played the guitar lead on Hotel California.
He didn't just play on it, he wrote it.

He's talking about the Bob Marley cover on it. There is an awesome saxophone solo both in the beginning, and plenty of filler throughout the song.
I finally went looking for the Marley version. Turns out it's actually another reggae artist named Majek Fashek. It's often attibuted to Marley because of the similar sound.

Heh, heh; I found that on YouTube too. The reply's and comments about it being or not being Marley are something else, they don't hold back over there!:twisted:

There is a second cover by the Skadaddyz where the hornline has melody.
