"Wonderful Tonight" Fingerstyle

I wrote this fingerstyle guitar arrangement for Eric Clapton's great 1977 hit, "Wonderful Tonight." The guitar melody that is ordinarily played on electric guitar has been pitched down an octave so that we can play both the melody and the chords at the same time. Instead of using bends for that melody, I used slides which works just as well.

You might also consider using the thumb of your left-hand to hold down those low F# notes. That will leave your other fingers free to fret the other notes of the D/F# chord.
