Iron Maiden – Hallowed Be Thy Name

Hallowed Be Thy Name

Heavy metal titans Iron Maiden had a huge influence on the metal scene in the 80s. Their guitar skills certainly captured me as a young budding guitarist. Let’s learn how to play Hallowed Be Thy Name on a ukulele..

This arrangement is made much easier to play by the fact thats all based around a E minor chord.

What Are We Learning To Play?

Below is a video of what you will be able to play by the end of this post. 

To make this easier to play, we are going place our fretting fingers into a Em chord. Use your ring finger on the 4th fret of the C string. Middle finger on the 3rd fret of the E string. Lastly, your first finger is going to barre all of the 2nd fret. 

Then you just need to use your pinky on the 5th fret of the E string when it comes up in the tab.

The blue h & p is too hammer on and pull off. Read this post to get an idea how to do.
