              MY FIRST LOVER,  Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings



This is mainly a banjo tab.

I couldn't find any tabs of this song so I decided to make one. Its one of the songs I 
wanted to learn when I first started playing banjo.
I hope this helps some people.
If you have any improvements to make, please feel free to do so.
I haven't tabbed Dave Rawlings's guitar playing in the song, just given some chords.  
Banjo is played claw hammer style.

Guitar has a capo on 2 and is basically just a repeat of A and C (or what is actually B 
and D because of capo) with a bit of stompin' beat to it.

Capo on 4.   Standard tuning except for the 5th string which needs to be tuned up to A.
