    Why is this a rant, having small overdubs in live recordings is fairly common. Hell, The Beatles At Shea Stadium features I Feel Fine and Help! rerecorded in their entirety in the studio and uses the...

    I wonder why he added all of these stickers, they seem pretty pointless to me.

    Good points, I guess The Wizard is a heavy metal song although the harmonica does make it seem bluesy as well as the rest of the first album and Technical Ecstasy although Never Say Die is definitely...

    That doesn't look like a Fender logo which must mean that it's a different guitar, I sure wish there were more pictures of Tony with the Fender Stratocaster that he used to record part of the first...

    Unless if it comes with the Gibson Les Paul that Ace Frehley used back in the 70's, I'm not buying it.

    Last night I decided to listen to some of the songs from the first album to find out which ones used a Fender and which ones used an SG and it seems to be that side 1 uses an SG while side 2 uses a...

    Hopefully I'm saying this in the right thread but I'm modding my Fender Stratocaster so instead of volume tone tone it's neck volume middle volume bridge volume. I'm also either going to put a single...

    This is my least favorite Sabbath album with Ozzy so the only 2 songs I've ever played from it are Never Say Die and A Hard Road.
    The former is definitely in standard, you can tell because the main...
  11. Monkey, Tony Iommi's 1965 Gibson SG Special

    I didn't see a thread for this so I thought I'd make one myself. As you may know, Tony used a left handed 1965 Gibson SG Special named Monkey due to the monkey sticker, from 1969 until John Birch...

    While I prefer Blizzard Of Oz, I think Holy Diver is more of a Black Sabbath album in the sense that it sounds like what they would've done had Dio stayed with the band whereas the other one sounds...

    Don't forget Yngwie. Anyways, the reason why Fender guitars are rarely used in metal is because they use single coils which are great if you want to play Rubber Soul but humbuckers handle distortion...

    Both are great songs but I picked Killing Yourself To Live because I like it slightly more than Cornucopia although not by much.

    I always considered Sleeping Village to be an instrumental because the intro is the only section with vocals in it and also some songs with short vocal sections like TSOP and Do The Hustle are...

    I never realized Tony used a Fender Stratocaster in his solo career.

    It's still weird that he called it a Les Paul though because he's a big SG player and refers to his other Gibson SG's as an SG as opposed to a Les Paul and the Gibson Les Paul SG's are identical to...

    Here's how I think of it:
    Besides the title track, N.I.B., and Behind The Wall Of Sleep, Black Sabbath's debut is more of a bluesy hard rock album akin to Led Zeppelin rather than a heavy metal...

    Something very weird about this guitar is that it seems to have both a righty and lefty pickguard on it.

    Does Sleeping Village count as an instrumental. If so, I'd pick that one. If not, Rat Salad or Orchid.

    Tony started working on Black Sabbath's debut album with a Fender Stratocaster. However, after recording Wicked World his neck pickup failed. Most say that he only used it for that song. However, I...

    Spot on guys, except I'm pretty sure A Hard Road is in C#, it doesn't quite sound right in standard. Also, I think After Forever and Solitude were recorded at the same session, which would explain...
