First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes


This is a really neat song on the Bright Eyes folk album, 'I'm Wide Awake It's Morning'. 

This is a Travis picking arrangement I've written that works well with this song (I think!). 


Enjoy! 


Standard Tuning

Capo on 4 on the album I believe, but adjust to your vocal range if ya like! 

*On some of the F(A) and G(B) shapes feel free to substitute the barre F or open G shapes for the alternate 
patterns if you'd like more of a bass heavy sound. I've included both forms in the tab at different spots
for diversity sake, pick which you prefer.
