The Beatles
Blackbird Ver 2 (Guitar tab)

Song: Blackbird
Artist: Lennon/McCartney (Paul�s song)
Album: The Beatles (White Album)

I�ve seen several tabs of �Blackbird� online, all of which sound good, but they�re kind of hard to play, unless you can move your left hand (or right for lefties) up and down the guitar neck fast. Here�s the tab from �Guitar World Acoustic� no. 41, their �White Album Mania� issue. It�s easier, because the chords are closer together, but it also takes a fair amount of coordination to switch the fingerings. The main differences are for the 5th measure (�Take these broken wings and learn to fly�) which is the 3rd here, because you repeat 1-3 (First time is the intro, 2nd time is �Blackbird singing in the dead of night�). The #s at the top are measure #s.

Then repeat this for verses. If you know the song, or listen to it, you�ll see how it works.
