Oasis - Wonderwall

This is probably the most up-to-date song I really know.......hey I't's only about 10 years old!!!

Chords are pretty easy (and this is a simplified version....I've seen add9's and maj7+5 on some tabs......anyway this is the "pub" version if you like.......

Oh, and if you want to play along with the CD, play the same chords but stick that ol' capo up there on the second fret........

Intro.....

Em/G/D/A7sus4 (repeat)

(Em)Today, is (G)gonna be the day,
They're (D)going to throw it back to (A7sus4)you,
(Em)By now, you (G)should've some how,
Rea(D)lised what you got to (A7sus4)do,
(Em)I don't believe that (G)anybody,
(D)Feels the way I (A7sus4)do,
About you (C)now....D/Dsus4/D/C

(Em)Backbeat, the (G)word is on the street,
That the fire in your heart is out,
(Em)I'm sure, you've (G)heard it all before,
But you never really had a doubt,
(Em)I don't believe that (G)anybody,
(D)Feels the way I (A7sus4)do,
About you (C)now....D/Dsus4/D/C

And (C)all the roads
We (D)have to walk are (Em)winding,
And (C)all the lights
That (D)lead us there are (Em)blinding,
(C)There are many (D)things,
That I would (G)like to (D)say to (Em)you,
But I don't know (A7)how....A7sus4/A7/A7sus4/A7

Cause (C)maybe, Em/G
You're (Em)gonna be the one that (C)saves me, Em/G
And after (C)all, Em/G
You're my wonder(C)wall...Em/G/Em

D/Em Today is (G)gonna be the day,
But they'll (D)never throw it back to (A7sus4)you,
(Em)By now, you (G)should've somehow,
Real(D)ised what you're not to (A7sus4)do,
(Em)I don't believe that (G)anybody,
(D)Feels the way I (A7sus4)do,
About you (C)now....D/Dsus4/D/C

And (C)all the roads
That (D) lead us there are (Em)winding,
And (C)all the lights
That (D)light the way are (Em)blinding,
(C)There are many (D)things,
That I would (G)like to (D)say to (Em)you,
But I don't know (A7)how....A7sus4/A7/A7sus4/A7

Cause (C)maybe, Em/G
You're (Em)gonna be the one that (C)saves me, Em/G
And after (C)all, Em/G
You're my wonder(C)wall...Em/G/Em

I said (C)maybe,Em/G
You're gonna be the one that (C)saves me,Em/G
You're gonna be the one that (C)saves me,Em/G
You're gonna be the one that (C)saves me,Em/G

Then there's a little fill that's repeated three times......

E--------3-0--
B--1-0-1------

Then played again till the G note on the top E string, but instead of ending on the open E string, give the E minor chord an almighty whack and hold it...........!!!

Had to do this pretty much off the top of my head, haven't got it on CD anywhere - but like I said somewhere before, close enough for the pub!!!

Alright Vic

I love this song. I have this Oasis album. I think they are great.

Thanks, I'm gonna learn this one.

just a quick note on performance dynamics - strike the first beat of each new chord with a firm downstroke, and the last with a firm upstroke.

oh, and to make it easier to play, keep your 3rd and 4th fingers anchored on the 3frets of the b and e strings.

This is my signature. Fear it.

Yeah, that's a really good lesson........must have slipped passed me somehow....

Only thing I missed was the G chord, using the B string at the 3rd fret...

but then again I really do go for the easy way!!!!

Thanks for pointing this out........

Vic.

:D

WONDERWALL – OASIS (Capo 2nd Fret)

Em7 = 0 2 2 0 3 3
G = 3 2 0 0 3 3
Dsus4 = x x 0 2 3 3
A7sus4 = x 0 2 0 3 3
Cadd9 = x 3 2 0 3 3
Dsus4/F# = 2 x 0 2 3 3

E doesn't = MC2, E = Fb

so if I understand correctly does the chord change every two beats?

That's the main info for me...

I don't recall, but I would suggest playing along with the original recording.
