great tab, the bridge is tough to get unless you've played the song before.

Great tab, although I'm having some trouble with the bridge too. Do you think you could add chord names where possible? That would help.

conepines - that last chord is supposed to sound funny. it kind of dies out at the end. then you make bird noises, and repeat the whole song. Then, you just finish on a full D chord. Its really tough to put tabs up with strum patterns or enough notes so you get what it should sound like. thanks for the comment!

I think the tab is great, but I'm having trouble figuring out the end of the bridge

could you be more constructive with your feedback?
my problem is usually that even though I can play it just fine, putting it to readable tabs is difficult. help me out.

That is hard to get your head around the first time...

not well spaced, but the *'s help.

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.
