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

[Verse]

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

  
[Bridge]

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

[Verse]

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!
