Wonderful Tonight appears on Eric Clapton's stunning album Slowhand and works superbly as a fingerstyle arrangement.
The song uses very straightforward chords and the entire piece contains only G, D, C and Em. So if you wanted to strum the piece it really wouldn't be all that difficult, however, as we are fingerpickers we combine the melody and the chords at the same time and essentially sing the melody with our fingers. This makes it a lot harder to play, but is tremendously fun and satisfying once mastered.
- Recorded in 1977
- Written for Pattie Boyd
- Key of G major
