I've known the fingering for Blackbird for some years.
But the middle part always fouls me up (yuck yuck).
You know the part.....'blackbird fly, blackbird fly
into the dark of the dark black night.."
Thanks. //Gary

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:
