When a BLUES GUITARIST Plays METAL... • BLACK SABBATH Slide Guitar Cover

I've had this Zakk Wylde-Inspired 4-string guitar kicking around the studio for years, and when I got a request for some "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath, I knew it would be the perfect instrument to summon up the Oz-Power! I had to re-create the whole band sound on 4 strings, so I put two low E-strings on the bass strings posItions, and the High B and E in the other two string slots, then tuned the bass strings to D and E, & the High strings to B and E for the melody notes. The key is using the thumbpick palm-muted for the rhythm, and the high strings un-muted with the slide for the vocal melody.
