Song of the Day

Behind The Wall Of Sleep
Black Sabbath
Black Sabbath (1970)

This song is a very good depiction of Black Sabbath's style during the Ozzy Osbourne years, it's kinda slow, very riff-heavy, changes tempo occasionally, and uses a bunch of power chords.  Tony Iommi was one of the people to really popularize the use of power chords, as well as tuning your guitar down for a deeper sound.  He did this because he was the victim of an industrial accident earlier in his life, which made it hard for him to use his hand for complex fingerings.  So he tuned his strings down and did simpler, slower riffs to make it easier for himself, and accidentally revolutionized rock music forever.
