B7/A X01202

The F#madd4 chord in particular was clearly visible in an Eagles video, as were the A-Asus2 and B7-B7/A changes. There are other ways to play F#madd4 but I think this is the easiest, which is probably why Frey chose to use it. They definitely play this in the key of E, but on the studio recording from Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) they aren't tuned to concert standard (A=440hz), or to anything else that makes sense, like a half-step flat. I find that if I set my tuner to A=433hz it comes out just right. The same is true of Take It Easy, so my best guess is that whatever they tuned to in the studio was off a bit. Play this along with the studio recording and you'll see what I mean. This is a modification of another entry I found here, but I can't remember whose it was. Constructive criticism is most welcome. Enjoy!
