U2 – First Time tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     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.
