When I looked it up, I was rather disappointed at the quality of the tabs for this song, so I decided to make a more interesting version myself. This is based off of, although now very far from, the best Carol of the Bells tab I could find here: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/misc_christmas/carol_of_the_bells_tab.htm

Anyway, it would be quite appreciated if you gave constructive feedback, as this tab is still in it's earlier stages and it is the first I have ever made.

Thank you, and Merry Christmas! (c:

>>This part is not in the normal version of the song. You don't have to play it, but the change in dynamic isn't as abrupt with this bridge. Also, be sure to use your pinky for the B so that you can preform the slide to B#.

I didn't think it was ready, :P
Can I update a tab after I submit it? ( That's the main reason I put it up here first )

And thanks for the thumbs up.
