    I play mostly classic rock and blues, but when the Iron Man movie came out I dusted off my TAB sheets. Yeah, its an oldie, but fun to crank those loud, distorted, overdriven chords with when nobody is home.

    So I'm looking for more fun to play, "old-school" heavy metal songs. I was never a big fan of the music and that decade of my life is somewhat of a blur :)

    Your song suggestions are most appreciated.

    The rest of the "Paranoid" album is pretty good. :)

    +1

    I always thought that the repeating riff in the lead of "Working Man" was reminiscent of riff before the solo on "Sweat Leaf."



    A lot of early Led Zepelin, e.g. The Ocean or Whole Lotta Love are good oldie jam tunes.

    I have The Sword ~ Age of Winters downloading from iTunes right now. Started skipping through the previews at Itunes and decided I had to have it. I can't believe it was released in 2006 and the band is from Austin, TX. What are those kids thinking? ;)

    Thanks for the tip!

    Yeah, I always dug "Fairies Wear Boots" off of that album...quite the driving motif...it's all pretty good for the times though.

    "Ironman" is an old Black Sabbath tune. "We Sold Are Soul for Rock N' Roll" is good compilation of Sabbath. Lots of heavy tunes on it.

    Yeah, it's a great album. I've only learned parts of it, but what I did learn appeared to be in drop C, which is playable on my 7-string in standard tuning. Have fun with it!
