Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

This is a really nice song with a good melody. I spent quite long on it, but its quite a 
song. I listened to it through and played it along a few times and it's PERFECT, 
to me. I can see if it really is once it's rated.

PLEASE RATE THIS TAB!

Verse:

G                      D
    It’s late in the evening

C                           D
    She’s wondering what clothes to wear

G                    D
    She puts on her make up

C                     D
    And brushes her long blonde hair

C                  D
    And then she asks me

                   Em
    Do I look alright?

               C             D            G
    And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

Verses:

G           D
   We go a party

C                D
   And everyone turns to see

G                 D
   This beautiful lady

C               D
   Is walking around with me

C                D
   And then she asks me

                   Em
   Do you feel alright?

             C            D            G
   And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight


D          C
   I feel wonderful

       D               G         D       Em
   Because I see the love light in your eyes

            C            D
   And the wonder of it all

                C              D
   Is that you just don’t realize

                G
   How much I love you

G                   D
   It’s time to go home now

C                   D
   And I’ve got an aching head

G                     D
   So I give her the car keys

C                      D
   And she helps me to bed

C              D
   And then I tell her

                      Em
   As I turn out the light

              C                D           G
   I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight

Em        C               D            G
   Oh my darling, you are wonderful tonight

Good effort, but overall wrong. The main theme is played on the B string at the 8th/10th fret. Same note, different sound. Also, during the verses that first D is actually a Bm, specifically played as: xx4230. All the chords are picked with an open high E string, except fo the bridge.

But you have a good ear!
