The “Wonderful Tonight Tabs" here are a great example of a classic song that's easy for beginners to play. There are only four chords in the song; G, D, C and Em. Now, you should be familiar with those chords even if you're a complete beginner, but the trick here is to play them as arpeggios. Here are the four chords, with the picking pattern:
Practice that pattern a few times without changing the chord, just so you get your right hand “in the zone". You can use a pick, but this is a nice easy introduction to finger-picking, too.
So now you know the chords, it's just a matter of learning the sequence for the song, which is like this:
G - - - D - - - C - - - G - - - (x 2)
It's late in the evening. . .
C - - - D - - - G - - - Em- - - C - - - D - - - G - - -
And then she asks me. . .
C - - - D - - - G - - - Em- - - C - - - D - - - C - - - D - - - G - - -
. . wonderful because I see. . .
If you want to play the little “fill" that appears a few times, it goes like this:
So that's it - as you can see, it's a nice easy song, but it sounds good when you play it. Now, once you've learnt your “Wonderful Tonight Tabs", you want to play a few more songs, so go and find some more tabs! But don't stop there - you can only go so far playing simple guitar tabs.
