I love playing guitar – lead guitar to be exact. BUT I have not touched a guitar since arriving in Japan. Been too busy doing my research work. It’s been two years now since I last held a lead guitar in my hands.
Playing lead solos was my way of relaxing after a hard day. I am into blues but willing to play anything. I also like classical guitar. Infact, I started on classical guitar before moving onto the lead guitar.
Anyway, I was surfing around and came across many Eagles video clips. And I think the lead solo in their hit song – Hotel California is one of the longest. It’s one of my favourite songs too. The lead solo lasts about nearly 3 minutes! I am not sure if there other longer lead solos.
Here are two versions of the song Hotel California. Both a live performance – one is with acoustic guitars (unplucked version). I like both.
