Iron Maiden tabs

Hallowed Be Thy Name guitar tab

                   Hallowed Be Thy Name

                by Iron Maiden(Steve Harris)

      Transcribed by Eddie Breslin(caladan@maths.tcd.ie)

                     (Solo's copied)   

INTRO:

This is the guitar part at the start. It is picked with the

thumb and ring finger. The high notes are all fingered with

the little finger of the left hand. I've shown which finger

to use for the low notes.

LEAD UNDER "Running Low" etc.

These first two bars are repeated over and over on the album

version. I've gone on to show roughly how it's played live

The first trill allows Dave to get the pick out of his teeth!



RIFF A:  with RHYTHM 1

RHYTHM 1:

This is doubled by the bass. It is the rhythm that is used for

the verses later on in the song aswell.

|--7-----------|--3----------|--5--------|--7------------7-----7--|

|--------------|-------------|-----------|------------------------|



RIFF B:

This is the riff between 'Running Low' and 'When the priest..'

As I suspected I was playing this wrong-sheer laziness!

This should be a lot closer to the proper way. The hammers

and pulls may or may not be the actual way its played but if

you want to play it as fast as its played live it's 

definitely the easiest way. Just listen carefully for the timing.



Bass plays Rhythm 1.

Gtr II (Adrian) just plays the first measure above over and

over (i.e. doesn't change to C)and the bass plays in unison 

with Dave.

Then Dave continues to play RIFF C,(leaving out the notes in brackets),

while Adrian plays the following harmony and Steve plays the following 

bassline.
