Clapton Eric - Wonderful Tonight tab

From: ichou@acs2.bu.edu (Ivans Chou)


There were a few replies to me for the tab of Wonderful Tonight, so I typed it up
last night, and I figured I might as well post it.

The following is MY rendition of Eric Clapton's Wonderful Tonight's guitar
solos/licks as it almost is on the 24 Nights album.  See my post of the chords
for this song to see where these things go.  Note values(durations) were not
included, because I can't figure them out.  I just go by feel, and I suggest
people listen to the tape/cd and determine how this should sound (and make the
appropriate modifications as necessary).


Wonderful Tonight
By Eric Clapton

Guitar theme (can be played 8va higher if you have 24 frets on your guitar, you
	would start on the 2nd string (B) on the 15th fret and play the same
	melody):

Finish off the song with the guitar theme and a little blues run in the same G scale. Ivans -- |Ivans S.
