Try doing the one in G major. It is much easier and sounds better.

About this song

Blackbird was written by Paul McCartney, but credited as usual to Lennon/McCartney. McCartney was inspired to write this while in Scotland as a reaction to racial tensions escalating in America in the spring of 1968, and (according to Sony/ATV Songs LLC 1968) McCartney stated that he had a black woman in mind when he wrote the song ('bird' being British slang for a woman). The first night Linda Eastman, who would later become his wife, slept over, McCartney played it to the fans camped outside his house.
