Easy lick one: Tony Iommi style
Here’s a classic Black Sabbath grind - perhaps to celebrate their recent full line-up reformation for 2012’s Download Festival! You’ll need to tune your guitar way down to C for this one (C, F, Bb, Eb, G, C) and crank up some classic British valve crunch for the most authentic Satanic sound.
Easy lick two: R.E.M chords
Try this cool chord sequence based on some of Peter Buck’s guitar work with the legendary Athens, Georgia band R.E.M. The G minor chord can be tricky so start slowly and work your way up gradually to 125bpm. Use a clean humbucker guitar sound for a clear but broad tone.
