Thank you so much for this helpful tutorial! As a former violinist I picked up the guitar a few years ago and blackbird was the first song I learned. After college though and a few broken strings my guitar hadn't been played in awhile and the skills I learned were lost, because I had not kept up with proper practice. This was the only video to show me adaquetly how to play this song again. It also helps me to remember what notes are where on the fret board, which is nice, because I know how to read sheet music. Thanks again this lesson has been great!
