                   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!

RHYTHM 1:
This is doubled by the bass. It is the rhythm that is used for
the verses later on in the song aswell.

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

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.
