Paranoid Tab

Look, 
This is SERIOUSLY the way it is supposed to be played. 
You don't use the 12&14 frats for this song, that sounds like shit.
I am not a tab artist myself, but it hurts to see such a bithcen'
song go to waste playing it wrong!!

Intro: *you don't need to use the two high strings at all!
And make sure you hit that top string with the 7-9 combo, it
brings out the low tone in this first riff.

E--X--------           -------------
B--X--------           -------------
G--7-h-9----           --------7--9-
D--7-h-9----           --7--9-------
A--7--------           -------------
E--O--------  3 times. ------------- 2 times.

Now you play that intro two times, then the drums hit.
Then you play it two more times.
So a total of four times for this succession.

Then it goes into the actual words..(remember not to use any
of the two high strings...that makes it sound bad.)

"Finished with my woman...             Line 1

E--X-------------------
B--X-------------------
G--9-------------------
D--9-------------------
A--7-------------------  ...This part is just up and down strumming.
E--O-------------------

"Cause she....                         Line 2
E----------------------
B----------------------
G----------------------
D----------------------
A-----------5----7-------
E---5---7---------------- ..as he sais"cause she" you break with this.


"couldn't help me...                   Line 3
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/black_sabbath/paranoid_tab.html ]
E----X------------------
B----X------------------
G----7------------------
D----7------------------
A----5------------------  ...same up and down strumming.
E----X------------------ 


"with       my      mind...            Line 4
E--X--------X-------X-----
B--X--------X-------X-----
G--12-------7-------9------
D--12-------7-------9------
A--10-------5-------7------
E--X--------X-------0----- 


*Verse 2

"People think I'm insane    line 1
because                     line 2
I am frowning               line 3
All the time. "             line 4

same successions for each line, 
just match it with the top.

Then it goes into 2 lines of this

X    X   X   X
X    X   X   X
9    5   7   9
9    5   7   9
7    3   5   7
0    X   X   0

"All day long I think of 
things but 
nothing seems to 
satisfy."

"Think I'll lose my mind if
I don't 
find some thing to 
pacify."

Then into the break.....


--X--                     --X--                             --X--
--X--                     --X--                             --X--
--9--                     --7--                             --9--
--9--                     --7--                             --9--
--7--  "can you help me"  --5-- "thought you were my brain" --7--
--O--                     --X--                             --O--

            --7--
            --7--
            --7--
            --7--
            --5--
"...oh yeah --X--


Then the song will basically repeat it's self...
But I am sure you get the idea. The main thing is that this song is
not played so high on this.
