Firstborn Chords
                             Firstborn - J.Tillman
Tabbed by: Sander Van Hoof
Email: [email protected]

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

Cadd9 D/F C G/C

Main Song
Dm             Am        (hammer)
If you have to break

Am          Gadd9        G/C Gadd9

Dm             Am        (hammer)
If you have to die

Kill the desires that you have

Cadd9            D/F            C               Gadd9         G/C    Gadd9   
Whoohooohooohooooooo whooohooohooooooo whooooohoooohooooooo              x2

Dm              Am        (hammer)
If you have to keep
Am                Gadd9     G/C  Gadd9
Keep your mind at ease
Dm             Am        (hammer)
If you have to sell
Am                 Gadd9    G/C  Gadd9
Break it 'til it's free

Dm     Am    (hammer)        Gadd9   G/C   Gadd9
whooooooooohoohooooohooooooooo            x2

Cadd9           D/F              C              Gadd9         G/C   Gadd9    
Whoohooohooohooooooo whooohooohooooooo whooooohoooohooooooo               x2

(Alternate strumming . . . . listen to the song)

C    C2     Am
Pass over me

                        Great tab thank you!Altho instead of playing the Dm like this 000231take off the first finger and play it like this 000230I think it sounds much better

                I want to post
                                    You may want to rate the tab now too:
                                                select rating
                                                Please do not post tabs as comments. Select "correction" instead!
