How To Play Blackbird

I receive many requests from readers who love all of the Beatles songs and want to play them for their own enjoyment. I have posted some of their popular songs in the past and you can see All You Need Is Love , Let It be and Help

.

One lovely song, Blackbird that was written in 1968, is to be played slowly and smoothly. Here is the chord chart to the song I found online. I think it is quite helpful for beginners.

Chords; A,Am,C,D,Dm,Em,F,G.
