Introduction:

Another classic riff is Iron Man by Black Sabbath. Here we are going to look at a simplified arrangement of the riff because the original version is actually quite difficult.

The Video Lesson:

Notes:

  • Make sure your picking hand is resting – this is particularly important when changing strings
  • The slides in this song can be optional
  • Try to use multiple fingers as much as possible
  • We write the “slide” with a slash symbol¬† –¬† \
  • Because this riff uses multiple strings, we need to write the tablature as below:
E|--------------------|--------------------|--------------|
B|--------------------|--------------------|--------------|
G|--------------------|--------------------|--------------|
D|--------------------|--------------------|--------------|
A|------5---5---7-7---|--10\9--10\9--10\9--|--5--5--7--7--|
E|--7-----------------|--------------------|--------------|
