Lee Hom Wang - 第一个清晨 (The First Morning)

(English & Pinyin Subtitles are available in the video) 

Chords for "The First Morning"

The guy in the 1st video has a tab at his website, tab #146. But it's completely fingerstyle tab. See his video's description for the link.


Or you can try playing the one in the 2nd video. Here, she plays similar fingering but relative to capo 1st fret. She sings, so her picking is simpler.

Little Swallow (English)

Little swallow, dressed colorfully,
Comes here every spring,
I asked her, "Why do you come here?"
She said, "The spring here is the most beautiful."

Little swallow, let me tell you,
It's more beautiful here this year.
We've built large factories,
And equipped new machines,
Please live here forever.

"Little Swallow" is a children's song originally in a film called A Nurse's Diary and has been very popular in China for about half a century. When I was little, I sang this song all the time.
