For the Birds

In honor of the birds that made me aware of my ability to tell pitch, I decided to listen to The Beatles' Blackbird obsessively. Farther inspired by chat with my uncle, I decided to not look up sheet music [or the how-to videos, that youtube keeps suggesting for me] and just go by my ear.

The result was me finding two of the notes on the fretboard. Like what I said before, the note duration is clear in my head, but the actual notes were a crap shoot. But I relaxed and I'm 90% sure I got at least two notes right.

[I should point out here that Blackbird doesn't have a bassline, so by doing this, by dissecting the song, and interpreting.]
