Already Gone (Guitar tab)

Eagles
On the Border
1974

This song rocks. This song was a pain to figure out, but here it is. I've tried
to get all the guitars in but I know that's not possible. Glenn sings and plays
some of the riffs, and Felder does the rest. I think it's pretty easy to play,
and lots of you will definitely be able to play it. And if it helps, the leads
are mostly based on the dorian mode of G major, and the solo is in aeolian mode.
Please write me with comments, because this took forever to do.
Have fun, and good luck!

The way this goes is we have the opening measure with only
guitar, then on beat one of measure two the drums enter.
Rhythm Figure 1 happens, and then the main riff happens, with
Rhythm Figure 1 behind it.

INTRO:
GUITAR 1 (dist. elec.)

Now we get to the verse, where we have
GUITAR 1 doing this thing. Find the lyrics below.

The verse continues simile until GUITAR 2 does the lead-in to the chorus, followed
by the chorus, which is just the main riff again (with the noted changes)
and GUITAR 1 still doing the verse thing:

Now we get into the next verse, and little riffs start
popping up. This first one comes after "But I guess
you felt like you had to set things right."

And the second comes after "You can see the stars but
still not see the light" and leads into the chorus.

Here's Felder's solo, which begins right after the last measure
above. There is also another part played by Frey which is higher
and not melodic. I tried a little to get it, but decided it wasn't
too important. Good luck! I think it's pretty easy myself.

These are the riffs from the next verse. The first comes
after "Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free." I'm
not sure this is exactly correct, but play around with it.
I can't do the artificial harmonics anyway.

The second comes after "And we never even know we have the key"
and leads into the chorus.

This continues simile until the end, with Felder and Frey doing some
more licks over the top, but they're kind of difficult to figure out.
I hope everyone enjoys playing this, and I hope I have been thorough
enough. Please e-mail me with comments, because this took forever to do,
and I think it's my best work yet. Have a BLAST!

Wow! Jeez man. I applaud you. I found this to be PERFECT. Believe me - I had A LOT of fun. I even got the solo down. Thank you so much for doing this. I've been looking for this tab for about a year now, and the only ones I found were ONLY the chords in the verse, and they were wrong. Thanks a lot man. Rock on!
