For whoever it was who was looking for TB tabs the other week, and indeed
for any other Oldies, here is the tab for The Bell (live Edinburgh Castle
version, which does differ very slightly from the studio version).
I've conveniently avoided tabbing the section between the end of the
tubular bells' part and the start of the solo classical guitar part
(well, have you ever tried tabbing flamenco?), but there should be enough
here to keep you occupied. The rhythm guitar bit in particular, which is
just about playable once through, but try keeping it up all the way
to the end (fnar!)....

Enjoy

Calum

Now, the rhythm guitar part which comes in here and plays through to the
end of the tubular bells' part goes something like this:

 ^           ^           ^           ^

... and so on, until the last bell fades away into the Edinburgh night....

Now, moving swiftly past the flamenco part :), the whole shebang ends
up like this (capo on fret 2):

           1st fing.
             4th fing.
