Battle Hymn of the Republic - Melody

  • Melody
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   55 bpm
  • Tuning   GDGBD

Listen on:

We're playing the melody for this tune in 7th position. That means our first finger is going hang out around the 7th fret, and the neighboring frets 7, 9, and 10 will be played with the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th fingers, respectively. Playing the rhythm of this melody precisely can be tough, and it's also a great exercise for your striking finger. It will definitely test your economy of motion. If it feels too tough, you can use the difficulty slider to dial out the 16th notes.
