Carol of the bells
Trace Bundy



         Note:  Tuning for this song is normally dropping the 1st 2nd and 6th strings 
down 2 steps and adding a capo on the 2nd fret
 but can be replicated by moving the 3rd 4th and 5th strings up 2 steps which is recommended.

	       also Note: that this is not exactly the way he plays it,
and at times not even actually what he plays, this is a cover on his cover of the song
 if you will, and nothing more.

        and maybe note: that occasionally the left hand will be doing half of the song 
all by its lonesome, and the notes being played will
 not have the added luxury of being picked.  the left hand will use only the fingers 
touching down on the frets ( and maybe an amplifier
 which helps exponentially ) to make the sound.  this applies throughout the song, and 
will be shown by { and } around the notes it will apply to
 practice will inevitably be required.

{ }= left hand hammer-ons, pretty much just tapping. left hand only.
( )= finger tap with right hand
* = vibrato
~ = held note
^ = up stroke
v = down stroke
shlap = slap the string over the sound hole
