This is the full fingerstyle guitar lesson for What A Wonderful World.
What a Wonderful World was written by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss, and was first recorded by Louis Armstrong in 1967. The song reached the number one spot in the UK and has gone on to be greatly loved in many countries across the world.
For this lesson we’ll be learning a fingerstyle arrangement of What a Wonderful World. It’s not an overly complicated rendition but you’ll likely have some challenges when learning it. One of the struggles you might run into is getting the melody line to be completely accurate; Armstrong’s timing is impeccable and it can be very hard indeed to get each note to line up just right. Just aim to get it as close as you can and for the melody to still sound good.
Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play What A Wonderful World!
