Title: Heavy Bells
Album: Essential Tremors

 /  slide up
 \  slide down
 h  hammer-on
 p  pull-off
 ~  legato (hold note through until next note)
 +  harmonic
 x  Mute note
 ^  bend up

Tuning: EADGBe (Standard)

Note: It looks like The Business tune their guitars down to Db, but I'm way too lazy for 
that (and hoping you are too).
So I left it in Standard E

Time signature:  4/4

There are two guitars, but they play pretty much the same thing almost the whole time.
