Black Bird - The Beatles
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Michael Coates
Email: Azhain@gmail.com questions or comments are welcome

**This song goes exactly with the originally recorded version**

This is 100% accurate, I tabbed most of it using a rock and roll guitar book
from the 60's, Then listened to the recording extensively for timing and pattern

Just because it came from a book doesn't mean it is 100% correct. I have found a Blackbird tab in 5 different books at Guitar center with 4 different ways to play it so someones gotta be wrong. That said, this is one way to play it. I have studied this song for many years and I just submitted a tab. Give it a try, if you play it right, you will like it. The picking is a bit more difficult but it flows nicely. Like I said, I am not saying your way doesn't sound good. Hell, I just listened to the version on the I AM SAM soundtrack and though its not the way McCartney played it, it still sounds very nice.

One thing I want you to do is listen to the low notes in the part where he sings "Take these broken wings......" and compare them to yours. You will hear a difference. Again, I am not trying to rip your tab apart. I'm just trying to help out.
