    That's why I love that Glenn is playing more solos this tour!
    Can't wait to see & hear him!

    My whole post was about Hotel California. Glenn gave some of his parts to Don so that they could play the songs better live. But when it came to Hotel California, instead of just giving one of the parts to Glenn, Don used a double-neck so that he could play both parts, with one (12-string) suddenly disappearing when the other part (harmony) starts. It seems that "giving parts away" worked only in one direction. But of course, it was Glenn who decided to give those solos away. Don didn't ask for them.

    My reasoning was that wouldn't it be "best for the Eagles" if that 12-string part could be heard throughout the song and with an acoustic. Seems to me that they compromised a little by having it played on an electric and disappearing when the harmony parts starts. Glenn could have played it, as he was going to play an acoustic anyway.
    But maybe the reason was that Felder could "show his stuff", although it isn't a solo, but a rhythm part.

    I see what you're saying, chaim, and it makes sense. I was trying to find a reason but as you said, it probably would be better to do it the other way.

    I don't know anything about playing guitar, and maybe because of that I and many others who see HC performed live are in awe of the double neck. Could they maybe have done it just for that reason alone?

    The topic is about TALA so I thought you were talking about that.

    I know. It was my mistake that I wasn't more clear. I edited that post.

    Someone asked who sang the harmony lead with Randy on Try and Love Again. I think it's Randy singing both parts.

    In listening to this song probably at least 100+ times I believe you are 100% correct JohnW. I believe it's Randy doing lead and backup. Perhaps this is the reason for not playing it but for two concerts as mentioned. Some songs are mixed for studio only. IMO. But one of the best Eagles/Randy songs out there.

    As stated earlier in the thread you can hear Glenn clearly sing the word 'oh' before the title is sung.

    I don't understand why if you have such great harmony singers they wouldn't be used. It has always sounded like Don & Glenn to me.
