Paul McCartney Calico Skies – Video guitar lesson with tabs and lyrics

Paul McCartney Calico Skies This is a video lesson about how to play Calico Skies by Paul McCartney. Calico Skies song is a song from album Flaming Pie (1997).
Hurricane Bob in north-east US in 1991 gave an inspiration to Paul to write this song. And it became the first recorded song for Flaming Pie album.
“Bob, the hurricane, knocked out all the power; it was all candle-light, cooking on a wood fire. Very primitive, but we like that enforced simplicity. I couldn’t play records, so I made up little acoustic pieces. This was one of them – it’s a primitive little power cut memory” – said Paul McCartney.
