Tony Iommi 'perfect role model for aspiring guitarists'
People who are just getting to grips with the electric guitar have been advised to take note of Tony Iommi's playing style.
Gibson Lifestyle blog contributor Russell Hall explained the Black Sabbath star is one to study for fledging musicians, with his style of performance allowing players to come up with melodic riffs and brooding tempos.
The commentator noted anyone hoping to take inspiration from Iommi needs to be aware that the electric guitarist tuned down his instrument one-and-a-half steps to C# from Sabbath's 1971 album Master of Reality onwards. He said this should be considered by those trying to master the band's classic songs such as War Pigs and Iron Man.
Iommi is currently in the process of trying to track down one of his electric guitars that went missing earlier this year. The Iommi SG instrument disappeared in July when the star appeared at the High Voltage Dio Tribute event.
