Mini Marshall Monday is a weekly video series from Lefty Luke (iRon Lion Band, Synaptic Sap, ex-Morta and solo artist) with the emphasis on getting back to the basics of rock n roll. A guitar, a cable and an amp cranked up.
In the third episode I play through one of my favorite Black Sabbath songs: War Pigs. This is the opening track to my favorite Sabbath album Paranoid and was the song they opened with when I saw them live in 2013(May have teared up a bit). Iommi was always a huge inspiration for me and not just because he was a lefty. His story of overcoming an unbelievable amount of adversity and ending up creating an entire new genre of music is amazing. His style is heavily rooted in the blues and the guy has incredible vibrato for not even having fingertips on his fretting hand. I could nerd out about Iommi for days but I’ll save that for another blog post. I did my own take on the solos while still paying respect to master Iommi’s style and main licks. Hope you enjoy!
