The Exorcist Tubular Bells Theme Song (Kalimba Tab)

In the original Exorcist film, the song "Tubular Bells" gained cultural significance as a haunting theme. It was composed by Mike Oldfield and originally released as part of his album of the same name. The song's inclusion in the film was a pivotal moment that led to a surge in its popularity and sales.

Although Oldfield was initially unhappy with the theme's association with the movie, he eventually released his own edited version in response. "Tubular Bells" is considered one of the defining pieces of music from The Exorcist and has been sampled by many other artists. The film that the song was featured in is considered to be the scariest of all time and the song gives people goosebumps which is perfect for halloween! Below is the tab and video tutorial so that you can learn to play the melody on the kalimba.
