The Maccabees - First Love Acoustic tab

This is the Orlando Weeks solo acoustic version. I hope it's correct, and not too complicated.

The intro is the same as the first 4 bars of original song.
This version is just strumed a little different, you might agree it sounds better using 
thumb to strum rather than a pick.

Intro

The lyrics come in the second time played (first love, last love...)

A|----7----7----7----7----|
E|----5----0----5----0----|

And are you cool...

This is the same as before but it "speeds up" or to use technical terms, you play 
instead of semi-breves.

same speed as before (quaver)
