I Cant Tell You Why Tab (ver 2) - Eagles


 
I Cant Tell You Why Tab
I CAN'T TELL YOU WHY          THE EAGLES        Hell Freezes Over

Note to Player:  Arranged for Acoustic Guitar.  This is not a note-for-note copy.  It is 
interpretation for a single guitar and singer.  Simplified a bit - but it keeps with 
overall feel/tone of the song.

Variation:  The Am/G phrase can be played with a higher voicing like this:

     Am   G         Am   G              Am   G        Am   G

---------------0-------------|    |--------------0-------------|

===========================================================================

Full Ending:  If you choose to play the full ending - here's a simplified
version for Acoustic Guitar.  The Eagles play it with fantastic bends
that may be difficult on an acoustic.  The tab below substitues literal
notes for most bended notes and simplifies it a bit.  Buy and listen to
the Hell Freezes Over verison for timing and to hear the real deal.

Each chord name represents 4 beats.

About the artist behind I Cant Tell You Why 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.
