Blackbird singin' in the Dead of Night.....

Only he's not singin' and it's not the dead of night. Otherwise.... well, it is a blackbird, or a tapestry blackbird, at least. He is, however, in this tapestry because of that Beatles song. It is one of the most complex and fun songs I have learned to play on my guitar, so I  spent a lot of time with it about a year ago, and I still go back and play it frequently. The part I play is the fingerpicking part that is immediately recognizable as "Blackbird," the part Paul McCartney plays. Only, of course, I do not play it quite as well as he does! (Nor do I play it left-handed.)
