She Breathes New Life Into “Hotel California”, Felder And Walsh Would Be Proud
Gabriella Brings New Life To Eagles Masterpiece
One of the most beautiful songs ever written for the acoustic guitar, the Eagles’ ‘Hotel California’ has embedded itself into our collective conscious over the years. In fact, there isn’t another song that makes us dream of long, lazy drives down Interstate 5 in California so much as this, and Swedish fingerstyle guitarist Gabriella Quevedo managed to capture that feeling with this rendition of ‘Hotel California’.
Arranged by Tomi Paldanius, this arrangement of the Eagles’ biggest hit is one of our absolute favorites! Armed with only her acoustic guitar, Gabriella brings an especially hauntingly beautiful aspect to it; without the lyrics to accompany it, you’re left at the mercy of a song that was meant to take you on a journey to a place where you could check in any time you liked, but never leave.
Fun Fact: Gabriella’s journey as a professional fingerstyle guitarist began at age 12 after falling in love with her father’s guitar; so in love that she had to have her own!
At 16, this young lady is a force to be reckoned with! More than just a “girl guitarist”, Gabriella is a fantastic glimpse at where the music world is headed with the surge in talented young people taking to YouTube to share their gifts with the world!
