Into The Void Guitar Lesson – Black Sabbath

In this Into The Void guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this classic from Black Sabbath's 1971 album Master Of Reality, in its entirety.

The tuning is C# standard tuning. That is, starting from the 6th string, C# F# B E G# C#.

This down-tuned early metal masterpiece contains lot of very cool riffs that are relatively easy to play.

I will cover each riff in the order that they each appear on the original recording.

For the solo section towards the end of the song, I have decided to demonstrate how to create your own solo using the same patterns that Tony Iommi uses in his solo instead of learning the original note-for-note. So I will break down how he approached this solo on the studio recording and live in great detail. There is also a killer riff that happens in the middle of the solo that also ends the track and I will cover that as well.

I hope you guys enjoy this in-depth breakdown of this much loved Black Sabbath classic! Carl..

    Great choice!!

    The different tuning really drives the point home when turned up loud!

    Underappreciated tune.
