I know there are tabs for Blackbird at Nevada, but as I recall, I don't
entirely agree with the one in normal tuning, and the one in open G seemed
harder than the normal version, for me at least. Anyway, this is how I
play the part in question. Normal tuning.

Etc. instrumentally through one verse, then repeat bridge, playing four
measures of the last chord (10/12), slowing tempo each measure. Rub a
wound string (A or D) with the tips of your thumb and forefinger to
simulate a European blackbird chirping. Then:
