HOW LONG - The Eagles

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: woega

Email: woega@hotmail.com

 

Tuning: standard

 

This is my interpretation of the ENTIRE song, lyrics, chords,

tabs including the INTRO, all RIFFS, the SOLO and the OUTRO.

 

I've tried to be as accurate as I can, but I'm open for suggestions :)

 

I've included the riffs and the lyrics alternating, so the lyrics should not

be linked to the tabs directly underneath.
