From: Martin Roulston 
Subject: TAB - Vol 4 Album by Black Sabbath - 7 tracks not in OLGA

This is my first attempt at tabbing. I've been working on this for about three
weeks on and off. When I started Supernaut was not in the OLGA but now it is.
My version is different, but I'm not sure if I should add the existing one to
mine or mine to the existing one or just leave it as it is.

I have attatched the text file Vol4.txt to this E mail. I hope it gets to you
Ok. If it doesn't do I have to paste it into this page I'm writing this on? If
you have time I would appreciate a reply letting me know if I've done this ok.


Subject - Album - Vol 4 - by Black Sabbath released 1972

Tabbed by Martin (martinjoanadam@hotmail.com)

Tracks Tabbed
1. Wheels of Confusion/Straightener
2. Tomorrow's Dream
3. Changes
4. Supernaut
5. Cornucopia
6. St Vitus Dance
7. Under the Sun

Note 1 - At the time I sent this Snowblind and Laguna Sunrise were already in
the OLGA archive, so I have not included these here.

Note 2 -for a lot of these songs Tony Iommi tuned his guitar down 2 frets so
the bass string was D. I haven't bothered as most can be played without tuning
down. However some are easier to play further up the neck, Tomorrow's Dreams,
for example, so try shifting what I've done up 2 frets to see if feels better.
I've avoided using open strings, where I could to make this easier.

Note 3 - I only have an acoustic guitar, so I tend to play a lot of the notes
that Iommi probably bends to, hammers on, pulls off, etc. Try playing around
with the notes to see if you can get it closer to the original.

All corrections gladly accepted. I would be interested to see how close I got
or other ways of playing these.

Note 4 - I have tried where possible to indicate timing by using 4 dashes to
equal 1 beat so |1---2---3---4---| = 1 bar in 4/4 time

Verse 2 Well I don't want no preacher telling me about the God in the sky. No, I don't want no one to tell me where I'm gonna go when I die. I want to live my life, don't want people telling me what to do I just believe in myself 'cause no one else is true.
