Iron man by Black Sabbath Guitar Tab

March 23, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 



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!

Top Ten Must Know Rock Guitar Riffs

June 16, 2009 by · 24 Comments 

Slash-Sweet-Child-O-MineThe guitar riff is central to rock and roll as we know it. A great intro riff identifies and emboldens a song and kicks the band (and the crowd) into overdrive. Rock history is filled with riffs that have changed the world and it is all of our jobs to learn to play as many of these as we can. That’s how we learn what greatness really is and how we absorb the vocabulary needed to craft our own riffs and songs. Read more

Ozzy Osbourne New AlbumThis morning Gear-Vault received information from USA TODAY that our beloved Madman, Ozzy Osbourne wishes to record two more new albums. Is this his final debut?

Ozzy is 60 years old, and has essentially proven to be the “godfather of heavy metal.” Osbourne’s professional music career started at the age of 20 with Black Sabbath. Ozzy’s first band was namely, “Rare Breed”, which was started with schoolmates; Toni Iommi (guitar riff-meister), Geezer Butler (bass) and Bill Ward (percussion). Soon after, “Rare Breed” had temporary departed, it was not until 1967 when the boys reunited and called the band “Earth”. Finally, in 1969 the legendary band name, “Black Sabbath” was embraced and history had begun. Read more
