First Day of My Life - Bright Eyes

Tabbed by Austin Bodin - austin.bodin@gmail.com

This is a really neat song on the Bright Eyes folk album, 'I'm Wide Awake It's Morning'. 
One day I saw that someone had tabbed a Travis picking version of this song, and while it was ok,
I thought I'd do my own version because Travis picking is just so damn fun, 
especially with folksy/bluegrass/country songs. If you're unfamiliar with
Travis picking, think Dust in the Wind by Kansas, or just do a quick google search,
it's pretty straightforward to grasp.

Enjoy!

Capo on 4 on the album I believe, but adjust to your vocal range if necessary.
