Eric Clapton – Wonderful Tonight Chords – Easy Songs on guitar


.

Hey guys, here’s another great guitar lesson from Marty Schwartz – this one on Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight chords.

The chords you need for this lesson are G, D, C and Em. Thousands and thousands of hit songs have been written using just these chords, so if you can get these ones down, they’ll serve you well for a lot of other songs too.

In this song, you can strum through the chords, or you if you want you can lightly pick through the chords. Wonderful Tonight is a great song for beginners this way, because you can start simpler, and then add a few more techniques as you get used to the chords.

In Wonderful Tonight, there’s also a cool little run coming down from the G chord. All you do is strum the G chord, then hit the F# note on the 6th string, 2nd fret, then hit the Em chord.

Marty is also going to teach you the signature riff in the song as well, so that you can really play the Wonderful Tonight chords along with the riff, to make the song sound complete.

Some fun quotes from this lesson: “You can sing it to your lady, they like that…”

So let’s dive into the lesson:
