    Hey moadhia,

    Song: Wonderwall
    Written by: Noel Gallagher
    Performed by: Oasis
    The song can be found on the album "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" and was
    released as a single in the UK and the US.

    I've seen a lot of transcriptions of this song that have the correct chords
    listed, but have left out the song's guitar fills, the parts played by the
    second and third guitar, and the often overlooked (and faintly heard) riff
    at the very end of the track, so here goes.

    To play this song along with the CD, you must put a capo behind the 2nd
    fret and play the following chords. All tablature positions are relative
    to the capo.

    Chords used:

    E A D G B e
    Em7 0 2 2 0 3 3
    G 3 2 0 0 0 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 (note:some people think this is a G/F# (200033))

    Here's the rythym of how the chord in the verses should be played:

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    e--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-3--3--3-3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3----
    B--3--3--3--3-3-3-3-3--3--3-3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3--3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3----
    G--0--0--0--0-0-0-0-0--0--0-0--0-2-2--2--2-0-0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0----
    D--2--2--2--2-2-2-0-0--0--0-0--0-0-0--0--0-0-2--2--0-2-2-0-2-2-0----
    A--2--2--2--2-2-2-2-2--2--2-2----------------0--0----0-0-0-0-0------
    E--0--0--0--0-0-0-3-3--3--3-3---------------------------------------


    Verse 1
    -------
    (NOTE: use the above strumming rythym when playing the verse chords below)
    (ANOTHER NOTE: play all "A7sus4"'s in the verses the way it is played in
    the rythym section above.)

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    By now you should've somehow realized what you gotta do

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do

    Cadd9 Dsus4 A7sus4
    About you now

    Verse 2
    -------
    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    Backbeat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    I'm sure you've heard it all before but you never really had a doubt

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do

    Em7 G Dsus4 A7sus4
    about you now


    Pre-chorus
    ----------
    (NOTE: the tab below is what is played by guitars 1 and 3 while guitar 2
    plays the chords above the words. The tab below is used for both the first
    and second lines of the pre-chorus)

    h=hammer on next note without picking again with the right hand
    p=pull off to make next note without having to pick the string w/ your
    right hand again

    Cadd9 Dsus4 Em7
    And all the roads we have to walk are winding

    Cadd9 Dsus4

    G Dsus4/F# Em7 G A7sus4
    would like to say to you but I don't know how

    Cadd9 Em7 G Em7 Cadd9 Em7 G
    Because maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me
    Em7 Cadd9 Em7 G Em7 Cadd9 Em7 G Em7
    And after all You're my wonderwall

    (hold Em7, then silence)

    drums come in, then:

    e--3-3-3-3-3-3-3---
    B--3-3-3-3-3-3-3---
    G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0--- (and then right back into chord
    D--0-2-2-0-2-2-0--- progression for the verses)
    A--0-0-0-0-0-0-0---
    E------------------


    Verse 3
    -------
    (same chords as Verse 2)
    Today was gonna be the day but they'll never throw it back to you
    By now you should've somehow realized what you're not to do
    I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now

    Pre-chorus
    ----------
    And all the roads that lead you there were winding
    And all the lights that light the way are blinding
    There are many things that I would like to say to you,
    but I don't know how

    Chorus
    ------
    I said maybe
    You're gonna be the one that saves me
    And after all
    You're my wonderwall

    Outro
    -----
