Wonderful Tonight Chord Chart

This is my Wonderful Tonight chord chart by Eric Clapton. A nice and easy guitar song that uses the same 4 chords over and over again. How....wonderful ;)

I really like Clapton as a guitar player. And one of my favorite guitar solos of all time was done by him, The solo for While My Guitar Gently Weeps by The Beatles.

If you know the chords, G, D, Em and C, then you are golden. The simplest way to play this song is with 4 down strums per chord but I will include a another strum for you below.

Strumming:
1 2  3+ 4+         
D D DU DU            

or:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D   DU    U DU
