Riff of the Week: Episode 5: The Beatles "Blackbird" Intro
"Blackbird" is also on my Top 5 songs you HAVE to learn before officially becoming a real guitarist. The chords used in the piece don't resemble any of the other basic open chords most students learn at the beginning of their introduction to the guitar. The chords are spread out all over the neck but have very similar patterns so it's not too difficult to learn. Remember to use 3 fingers on the right hand as opposed to two. Special thanks to one of my closest friends, Dee, for properly showing me how to play this piece years ago! Enjoy!" Joel Ovadia
