Total Guitar - - HOW TO -

Tony Iommi played a Gib­son SG through a Laney LA100BL amp on

Warpigs, so you’ll need a Bri­tish­style valve amp (or a dig­i­tal em­u­la­tion) and a gui­tar equipped with a bridge-po­si­tion hum­bucker to get an au­then­tic tone.

Keep the midrange low and the tre­ble rea­son­ably high to get close to Tony’s sound. If you’re play­ing a Stra­to­caster or sim­i­lar sin­gle coil-equipped gui­tar, dial in more bass and less tre­ble on your amp and ex­per­i­ment with more gain.
