Wonderful Tonight Guitar Tutorial (Chords and Lead) Eric Clapton

Wonderful Tonight Guitar Tutorial

Welcome to my Wonderful Tonight Guitar Tutorial by Eric Clapton on acoustic guitar.

This tutorial covers the chords & lyrics, strumming pattern, picking pattern and lead guitar lick all on acoustic, but you can also play this on electric guitar.

Normally I like to keep the lesson portion of my videos under 5 minutes but this one is totally worth it!

Wonderful Tonight Chords: G C D Em D/F#

The chord shapes are pretty simple for the most part. G C D are like an easy 3 chord song on guitar, and the Em is usually the first or second shape people ever learn. The D/F# looks like it might be tricky, but it’s used as a transition chord, so there’s an easy way to pivot and make the switch accurately.

The lead is a little trickier, requiring a bend, which is no simple feat on acoustic guitar! We work our way through it, and try our best. Over time, things will start to sound better – I promise!

Have a fun time practicing!
