Wonderwall – Oasis
The storming hit Wonderwall by Oasis is one of the best songs to learn on guitar. Firstly because everybody knows it and will sing on. Secondly because it introduces a clever trick with the left hand.
The trick is to just leave your third and fourth fingers stuck on the third fret on the top two strings ALL THE TIME. Your other fingers just move around that.
You also learn a semiquaver (16th note) strumming pattern. This is quite tricky to begin with, so just build it up one beat at a time and you’ll soon get there.
You don’t have to play exactly the pattern shown, it’s really just an indication of the rhythm. In fact on the original recording you can hear that he varies the strum pattern all the time. This is one of the aims of your practice – to be able to play strum patterns randomly as you imagine the rhythms.
