Blackbird – ukulele playthrough

For those of you who learn well through observation, here is a tutorial of a sort. More of a playthrough, actually. A few years back I scoured the web for every ukulele version of blackbird I could find and developed this arrangement using my favorite bits from each. FWIW I think this song is a more of a challenge on ukulele than it is on guitar, but just take a close look at my fingers, you’ll be playing this one in no time I am sure.

I shared my cover of this (complete with vocal part) a couple months ago (you can find it in the feed) but thought some uke players might like to see the uke part up close and personal. Feel free to sing along. This one is in the key of C. Paul McCartney does it in G.
