Artist: U2 Song: First Time
------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE FIRST TIME - U2 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tabbed by: Eric Gardner Email: u22utoo@yahoo.com
Tuning: Standard
My rendition of the song, inspired by a very touching live performance during the last of the Vetigo tour in Honolulu, HI. Bono sang it from the main stage. Starting on the verse (I have a brother...), he started singing to The Edge, who was on the B Stage. slowly worked his way out to The Edge and then hugged him at the end of the song. A performance of a beautiful song. Also a very easy song to play. You can even replace E chord I tabbed with an open E chord if you choose to do so (X22100). Enjoy.
