Lockdown Riffs #4


Black Sabbath


Paranoid is a classic hard rock riff that’s quick to learn and lots of fun to play. According to Tony Iommi, Paranoid was just a filler song thrown together because they needed an extra track to finish the album. Of course it became one of their biggest hits. At 165bpm it's fast and the 12 to 14 hammer-ons may be a challenge so practice them slowly and deliberately. Best of all though... step on your distortion pedal and turn it up! 🤘🏻
