First Day of My Life

Tabbed by: Kendall Weaver

Notes: This is a fingerpicking version I came up with after listening to the song a few
times.  It works particularly well and isn't very difficult.  The style is called "Travis
Picking" and another example is "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas.  It shouldn't be hard to
put the lyrics to it once you get it figured out.  Capo according to your voice range, I
have to play it open in order to sing it.

The song follows this basic structure:

Intro
Intro
A Verse
A Verse
B Verse
Bridge
A Verse

Bridge

Alright here it is:
