  2. Really great!. One minute thing though … during the 'take these broken wings and learn to fly section'…the chromatic upward c, c sharp, D, E flat bit….you leave your little finger on when changing chords from the c to the c sharp and from the D to the E flat. I believe that McCartney takes it off (so it's a two finger only chord) because you can hear the open b string ringing in the chord. You can hear it clearly on the instrumental section here from about 1.03. . Best Blackbird tutorial on here though!!!

  3. I have that exact guitar

  4. Nothing cooler than looking up how to play a song and seeing the exact same guitar in your hand as on the video.

  5. Totally Superb . No Question. Thankyou but don't let it go to your head. Blackbird. Try and compose one like yourself. with respect. Sir. Well done.
