“He started on guitar to begin with. I really like his style, Geez, and the way he improved and improved over the years. On that first album he was playing a lot of stuff that was really different. Instead of copying just what I was playing. The bass was usually just 'boom, boom, boom'. But he was like Jack Bruce was – they’d play harmonies, melodies or follow the riff, bend the strings. Bass players didn’t do that.”
Total Guitar issue 223 (on sale 28 December to 27 January) features a full tab of Black Sabbath classic ‘Children Of The Grave’, as well a backing tracking, a guide to nailing the tones and the story behind the song.
