BLACKBIRD by: The Beatles

Tab by: Aaron Meredith

Standard tuning: (E-A-D-G-B-e)

/ = slide up
\ = slide down
~ = let ring
                            
Note*- When you see a note like this (3) that is an optional way
To play the note below it. This is for those who have trouble reaching
on certain parts of the song. Actually, I think the notes in () might be
the way Paul played it. I am just more comfortable playing it the other way.
