How to play Witchy Woman by The Eagles. All the cool riffs from Witchy Woman as well as the tabs. 

Interesting tidbit from Songfacts: “According to the liner notes for The Very Best of the Eagles, the song originated with guitarist Bernie Leadon playing a “strange, minor-key riff that sounded sort of like a Hollywood movie version of Indian music.” The song’s lyrics didn’t develop until Henley went down with a flu and high fever while he was reading a book about Zelda Fitzgerald. “I think that figured into the mix somehow – along with amorphous images of girls I had met at the Whisky and the Troubadour,” he recalled.”

Guitar Animal provides members with an easy to use video player that allows you to define sections of any lesson to loop as often as you need. You can even slow down the speed of the looped section. This will really help you nail those tricky riffs. Here's how it works:

How to use the guitar animal video looper

While playing any video on Guitar Animal, hover over the active video window with your mouse pointer. Or tap on a mobile device. Click the AB Loop button. The button will turn green when activated. Now you can either use the keyboard shortcuts I for in, and O for out, to set your loop points. Or drag the handles to your preferred in and out points. Now the video will loop that segment! Click the A/B loop button again to turn off looping. You can also slow the video down or speed it up. Click the 1x button at the bottom right to select your desired speed.

    So far so good, how about the solos?

    • Trent

      Thanks for your comment lroberts, here at Guitar Animal we do from time to time re-visit the songs we cover and add solos if we receive enough interest in them. This song has some great solo riffs so I would bet that we will more than likely be adding solo parts to it in the future.Thanks for using Guitar Animal and stay tuned for more cool stuff. Trent

      solo ?? there are some fills also in this song ?

      • Trent

        Good afternoon onaride63, thank you for your questions. Yes. I realize that I do not cover the solos to many of the songs we have here on Guitar Animal. Right now we on trying to bring as many new tabs to our members as possible so we are putting our efforts into the body of the songs and the correct rhythm work. Many of our members had stated that as they are first and second year students of the guitar they are not ready for solo work. They just were skipping the solo sections. I will include more solos in the future. For now I am putting most of my resources into adding more beginner songs to satisfy our many new members. Thanks again for your comments, Trent

    Thanks Trent! It’s a great song, and it would be hard to leave out the solos!
