Those driving bass lines and thumbing drum beats are sic. While the people I jam out with are all musicians none of us has actually spent a lot of time playing out.
Because of this we rarely ever play a cover song all the way through or even the way a song was originally created.
What we do is simply try and enjoy being in the moment with the music and just have fun.
For me personally Black Sabbath wasn’t my introduction into Heavy Metal.
The first band that was considered Heavy Metal for me was Metallica and then of course Anthrax, Slayer, Sepultura, Pantera, Manowar and others.
Basically if it had lots of deep distortion I probably listened to it. I wouldn’t consider myself a heavy metal guitarist or any kind of guitarist.
I just like music and if something sounds good to me it sounds good. I don’t dislike “types” of music.
With all that said,
Once I listened to Black Sabbath I connected all the dots. Their use of power chords are genius as they are simple to play.
So I am glad I recorded a little of us jamming out National Acrobat.
