The First and the Last

By Eman

Hey guys!!..here's a song from Hillsong's new album, Faith+Hope+Love, titled "The First and the Last". Hope you like it, God bless!



I'm using a single coil neck pickup, with a little bit of overdrive (not too much distortion) and some delay.

Verse/intro:
***|
---------------------------------------|
------13------13------15--15--15---15--|
----13--13--13--13--13--13--13--13-----|
--13------13------13-------------------|
---------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------|
|->(x4)
-------------------------------------- |
------13------13------11--11--11--11-- |
----13--13--13--13--13--13--13--13---- |
--13------13------13------------------ |
-------------------------------------- |
-------------------------------------- |
***|

------------------------------
------15----13-----15----13---
----13----13-----13----13-----
--13----13-----13----13-------
------------------------------
------------------------------


------------
------11----
----13--13-- (x4)
--13--------
------------
------------

I used a guitar with humbuckers for the bridge, which has a fatter rock sound. I used alot of overdrive here, with some delay. \

use palm mute at the start
----------
-6-4-6-6--
---------- (x4)

---------------------------------
--4-6-6-4-6-6-4-6-6-4-6-6-6s9-8--
---------------------------------

--------------------------6s8--
--4-6-6-4-6-6-4-6-6-4-6-6------

----13--13--13--13--13--13--13--13-----|
--13------13------13-------------------|
---------------------------------------|

move everything down 4 frets

The Hillsong guitarist plays a G on the second note, not a G#. IMHO it sounds just as good as a G#, but for all you stingy guitarists out there like myself, the correct tab for the first pattern is
|----8------8-------11--11--11 etc...
|---8--8---8--8---9---9---9---
|-8------8------8-------------
|-----------------------------
|-----------------------------
|-----------------------------

Also, if you insist on playing in the 13th position (12th actually), the correct pattern would be like

|-------13----- etc...
|----12----12--
|-13-----------
