This song is extremely awesome, and also very fun to play.  Truly it is a good song to 
off your skills while still playing in a holiday type format. well, here it is hope you 
it.  Please rate.



Here goes the acoustic intro (fingerpick sounds good)
0:00
   (repeat10x)

E---------------------------------|
B---------------------------------|
G---------------------------------|
D-------9-9-7---------------------|
A---7-7-------10-9-7-5-7----------|
E---------------------------------|

At the ritard, violin line ends on open D
And the acoustic line ends on first note.

Then the cool descent
1:04
E--12--12-12-10-----------------------------7-------------|
B---------------13-12--12-12-10-8-10--10-10---8--5--5-5---|
G---------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------|

And the cool ascent (supposed to be picked, but
whatever)
The chord beneath these runs is B5
1:08
E-----------------5-7-5--------------------5-7-5-----|
B------------7-8--------8-------------7-8--------8---|
G--------8-9---------------------8-9-----------------|
D--9-11--------------------9-11----------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------|

E------------------------------------------------|
B-----------7-8-----------7-8-----------7-8------|
G-------8-9-----------8-9-----------8-9----------|
D--9-11----------9-11----------9-11--------------|
A------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------|

E------------------12--or---(24)----|
B-----------7-8---------------------|
G-------8-9-------------------------|
D--9-11-----------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------|

Next riff: The note in( )is a trill and ^ is a bend
1:19
E---------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------|
G--9-9-9-7------------------------------|  Repeat once
D----------10-9(10)9-7-9^-7-5-5-4-2-----|
A---------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------|

Higher riff 2x
1:26
E--12-12-12-10---------------------------------|
B--------------13-12(13)12-10-12^-10-8-8-7-5---|
G----------------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------|

Then its the whole instrumental part
And now the 'Bell'riff
First, power chord build up

E----------------------------------|
B----------------------------------|
G--9--7--5--4----------------------|
D--9--7--5--4----------------------|
A--7--5--3--2----------------------|
E----------------------------------|

And the haunting lead (make it a half step bend)

E--12~--10~--8^-7-----------|
B---------------------------|

The Descent
B--17--17-17-15-13-----------------------------------------------|
G------------------16--16-16-14-12-14--14-14-16-14---------------|
D--------------------------------------------------14--14-14-14--|

The Ascent
B------------------10-12-10-------------|
G----------9-11-12-----------12---------|
D--9-11-13------------------------------|

Haunting Lead
B--17---15---12^--12-- where ^ is a half-step bend

After the haunting lead, the descent and ascent
reappear, beginning at
2:20.  After the repeat of the ascent, it's

(2:29)
B---------------------------------------15--17-----|
G--12--11h12-9---------1614p12-----12--------------|
D-------------------------------14-----------------|

Then it's the descent and ascent again, and after two
repetitions
the ascent builds up with repetition, and ends with a
longer ascent:

(2:46)
e---------------------------9-10-11-12---|
B------------------10-12-13--------------|
G----------9-11-12-----------------------|
D--9-11-13-------------------------------|

Then they go nuts with e--12-- and a tremolo arm for a
bit,
then this piece which, if I'm right, is just an easy
slide.
But if I'm wrong, it's insanely hard. :)

(2:55)
G--164-4/16---  [play 4x]

E--19--17--15------------------------------------------------------15--17--19--|
B--------------19--17--15------------------------------15--17--19--------------|
G--------------------------17--16--14------14--16--17--------------------------|
D--------------------------------------17--------------------------------------|

Next the harmony guitar:

E--15--14--12------------------------------------------------------12--14--15--|
B--------------15--13--12------------------------------12--13--15--------------|
G--------------------------14--12--11------11--12--14--------------------------|
D--------------------------------------14--------------------------------------|

(3:03)
e--15---17---19---22---24--|
B-------15---17---20---24--|
G--16----------------------|

And the song fades out with the background guitar riff
that was mentioned.
