This is the full guitar lesson for Blackbird by The Beatles.
Blackbird was written by Paul McCartney in 1968 and appears on The Beatles’ The White Album. McCartney has stated that the inspiration for the song was hearing a blackbird singing whilst practising transcendental meditation in India, and from the troubled state of race relations in United States at the time.
This song is a very popular one to learn for virtually all acoustic guitarists, and for good reason. It’s a song that isn’t too tricky to play and sounds fantastic even without the lyrics. It’s perfect for the intermediate fingerpicker.
