The Misfits – Halloween

The Misfits – Halloween (Chords)

It’s not quite Halloween season yet, but I’m kicking off my Halloween series of posts to give you plenty of time to practice ready for the big night. Although you probably won’t need three weeks’ practice to get this tune up and running.

There’s only one band that could kick off Halloween season. The Misfits dedicated their entire career to writing songs based on low-rent horror films. They even went so far as to write two songs called Halloween – so I didn’t have much choice but to write up the better Halloween song.

The chords are fairly simple. The main challenge comes in the instrumental section in the middle. There are some quick moves from E to F, so I’d recommend using the same chord shape for both – sliding it up and down – rather than trying to switch to the open F shape.

There’s a very good chance The Misfits will crop up again in this series, but if you can’t wait there are loads of Misfits chords here.

    […] This track is from the later, and some would say crappier, non-Danzig version of The Misfits. But I quite like this song and, with a capo at the first fret, the chords are similar to those used in Halloween. […]
