Iron man by Black Sabbath Guitar Tab

March 23, 2011 by  



Iron Man by Black Sabbath Guitar Tabs Toni IommiIron Man by Black Sabbath is one of my 5 easy guitar songs because of the simple chord progression. Not only is this song easy to play, it sounds powerful. This song is the beginning of metal guitar. Since the songs release in 1970, a lot of notable bands have re-made a cover of “Iron Man.”  Iron Man has also been used in many TV show, films and, or course, sporting events. Since the 1976 release of Black Sabbath’s ‘We Sold Our Soul for Rock ‘n’ Roll‘ album, “Iron Man“, by no surprise, has been included in subsequent Black Sabbath greatest hits compilations. Even the sound track of the 2008 comic book film, Iron Man, included the “Iron Man” song. This song should be on everyone’s favorite “easy guitar songs to learn” list. Below is the guitar tab for Iron Man. This is a public guitar tab transcribed, but not original. There are many ways to play this song, and I believe Tony Iommi has played it different ways while performing live. Now stop reading and start learning this guitar song!
