The Eagles’ 1976 mega-hit single “Hotel California” turns up on the lists of “best guitar solos of all time.” In fact, it earned the No. 8 spot on Guitar World‘s often-quoted list of the 100 greatest guitar solos. While the recording features the guitar work of Joe Walsh and Don Felder, the primary guitar heard throughout the solo belongs to Felder, who also wrote the music for the track. In the studio, Felder played the intro on a Takamine 12-string and the solo on his 1959 Les Paul Standard.
