Subject: TAB: Wonderwall  by Oasis

From Fred Lidskog 

Wonderwall, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis.
Song can be found on the album "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" and was
released as a single in the UK and the US.

I've seen alot of transcriptions of this song that have the correct chords
listed, but have left out the song's guitar fills, the parts played by the
second and third guitar, and the often overlooked (and faintly heard) riff
at the very end of the track, so here goes.

To play this song along with the CD, you must put a capo behind the 2nd
fret and play the following chords. All tablature positions are relative
to the capo. 

Chords used:

	 EADGBe
Em7	(022033)
G	(320033)
Dsus4	(xx0233)
A7sus4	(x02033)
Cadd9	(x32033)
Dsus4/F#  (2x0233) [note:some people think this is a G/F# (200033)]

Here's the rythym of how the chord in the verses should be played:

   Em7		  G		 Dsus4	     A7sus4
e--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-3--3--3-3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3----
B--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-3--3--3-3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3----
G--0--0--0--0-0-0-0-0--0--0-0--0-2-2--2--2-0-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0----
D--2--2--2--2-2-2-0-0--0--0-0--0-0-0--0--0-0-2--2--0-2-2-0-2-2-0----
A--2--2--2--2-2-2-2-2--2--2-2----------------0--0----0-0-0-0-0------
E--0--0--0--0-0-0-3-3--3--3-3---------------------------------------


Verse 1
-------
[NOTE: use the above strumming rythym when playing the verse chords below]
[ANOTHER NOTE: play all "A7sus4"'s in the verses the way it is played in
the rythym section above.]

Em7        G		 		 Dsus4			A7sus4
  Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you
Em7	     G			   Dsus4	       A7sus4
  By now you should've somehow realized what you gotta do
Em7		     G       Dsus4	     A7sus4
I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do
	  Cadd9	   Dsus4    A7sus4

   Backbeat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out

   I'm sure you've heard it all before but you never really had a doubt
Em7		     G       Dsus4	     A7sus4
I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do 
	  Em7   G     Dsus4     A7sus4
