Hallowed Be Thy Name Guitar Lesson – Iron Maiden

In this Hallowed Be Thy Name guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this Iron Maiden classic note-for-note.

The tuning is standard tuning.

We start the lesson off with the clean guitar intro that uses 10th diads on the A and B strings. The diads move around pretty quickly and you will need to use basic fingerpicking technique as well.

From there we have a quick harmony guitar section that leads into one of the many rapid fire single note riffs you will find throughout "Hallowed By Thy Name".

The verse sections are relatively simple and based around easy power chords.

Later in the song, you will see more of those fast picking riffs. They might sound similar, but there are some variations thrown in there, so make sure you pay attention to all the sections that I cover in the lesson.

I will also go through both guitar solo sections. As with most Iron Maiden songs, there will be a lot of cool licks to dive into here, using lots of legato, fast picking and HUGE bends.

I hope you guys enjoy learning this Iron Maiden masterpiece!
