                             Firstborn - J.Tillman
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Sander Van Hoof
Email: vanhoof.sander@telenet.be


Tillman writes simple yet complex songs in terms of rhythm and hammer-on's so I 
advice you to listen to the song to get both right. When playing the Am he 
sometimes pulls of to 002030 and hammers back to 002230. 
He plays the G/C for one beat.
This might not be 75% accurate but I've been playing it with the track/youtube 
recordings etc and I think it sounds great  . . . . so cut me some slack.


Cadd9 : 023030 
D/F: 003030 
Gadd9 : 300003
G/C : 302013
Dm : 000231
Am : 002210
C : 032010
C2 : x20010
