                       THE FIRST TIME EVER I SAW YOUR FACE
                           As recorded by Bert Jansch
                
Music by Bert Jansch
Transcribed by Oliver C. Knörzer

There are some crude versions in this forum, with alternating measures, etc. So I
decided to post my transcription of this great instrumental, which is notated in
4/4 as it sounds on the record (in my ears at least). 
You may find the PowerTab File on www.acousticpower.com.

Tuning: D A D G A D
