Description
Hey Guys! Here's an early holiday present for you!

A NEWER version of my arrangement of the Holiday Classic "Carol of the Bells"...

I had posted a version here back in December of 2005 so I figured it was time for an "upgrade" ;)

So Listen, Download and enjoy!! Merry "Axemas!!"

Arranged, Played and Produced by ronnielong aka "Jimmy the Saint"
Inspired by Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Gary Hoey


Ps. I hope you like your face melted! :)

Good to hear this updated shredder-tune done justice... I like this one even better than your previous one, although I notice you got a little confused near the end there and started playing some other shlocky xmas tune (smirk). Nice bass and guitar work there, and I like how you slice-n-diced the arrangement, kept my attention. Dragons love sticking their nose into the fire... here's wishing you a hot holiday! Thanks for the rocker!
ttfn,
Drakonis

YEEEESSSSS!
I have always been fond of your 2005 version... but thought that it could have been fleshed out a bit more. I am glad you re-visited this and made it longer, thicker and meatier!!! OK, I will stop with the adjectives now.
