Hotel Little Wing

Another YouTube suggestion.

Laszlo Buring, who brought us Dire Straits doing Riders on the Storm, plays “Hotel California” if it had been covered by Stevie Ray Vaughan.

So there’s a couple of influences here, the most obvious one being SRV’s version of Little Wing. Then there’s some parts that a reminiscent of Riviera Paradise, and a little bit of Tin Pan Alley.

SRV’s version of Little Wing did not contain any vocals and that’s the way I decided to go with this one aswell. The chord progression of each verse is quite longs which gives you a lot of time to build towards that chorus and then back down to a verse, where it goes so quiet you can hear the hum of the guitar through the mix.

Hope you like it!

Indeed I do.
