L009 Blackbird - Lennon, J./McCartney, P.

£12.49 – £15.49

This arrangement of the timeless Beatles classic is completely true to the original, with the melody shared between the Alto and 1st Flute, and set against a rolling, guitar-like accompaniment. The optional part for a clicking metronome, (operated by the players or a helpful metronome soloist) can be replaced  by a tapping foot as in the original song, or, for larger groups, a woodblock or similar. Beautiful Beatles!
