On The Border Tab
Eagles
On the Border
1974

I guess you could call this a little disco-country
off the On the Border album.  This is a pretty cool
song with a great chorus, written by my three favorite
Eagles members.  So I'm gonna jam on this, and I hope
you guys do too.


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

GUITAR 1:   Electric, plays distorted parts in intro and chorus,
		plus half the verse riff.
GUITAR 2:   Electric with a funky effect, plays the stuff behind
		the verses and does the solo.
GUITAR 3:   Rhythm electric playing chords during intro	and chorus,
		plus half of verse riff.

Here's the part behind the verse (GUITAR 2).  I have no idea what
effect he has on there, but I think there's a little distortion
and maybe a little wah.  Anywhere you see RIFF, GUITAR 1 and 3 play
the riff shown here.

   Cruisin down the center...

Now, we get to the chorus.  GUITAR 1 and 3
are going here, with GUITAR 1 playing the
tab below, and GUITAR 3 playing the chords.
Right after this, they go into another verse
and chorus, then they go to the bridge.

During the second verse, the last part doesn't happen,
it goes right into the bridge.


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

Here's the bridge.  A lot of what you hear
is bass, and I haven't notated that.
GUITAR 1 and 3 play the bottome line
    (with divisi where indicated).
GUITAR 2 plays the top.

Now we go to the chorus, and then to the solo.
The two measures I have here repeat all the way

around with this a little, cause of course
Leadon does:

About the artist behind On The Border Tab:

The Eagles are an American rock band that was formed in Los Angeles, California, in the early 1970s. With five Number 1 singles and six Number 1 albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful recording artists of the decade. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 and Hotel California, ranked among the ten best-selling albums according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The best-selling studio album Hotel California is rated as the thirty-seventh album in the Rolling Stone list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", and the band was ranked number 75 on Rolling Stone's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[1] They are also the best-selling American group ever, with Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971–1975 being the best-selling album in the U.S. to date.[2][3]

The Eagles broke up in 1980, but reunited in 1994 for Hell Freezes Over, a mix of live and new studio tracks. They have toured intermittently since then, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

In 2007, the Eagles released Long Road out of Eden, their first full studio album in 28 years.
