One of his most hauntingly beautiful songs, Wonderful Tonight is a showcase of Clapton’s ability to make incredible music with only a few notes.
The arpeggios underlying the melody are simplistic but well crafted and more intricate than they may seem.

Learn to play this melody with gritty emotion and sorrowful feel and your solos and lead playing will begin to take on a whole new life of there own!
