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 it is tremendously fun and satisfying once mastered.
