I noticed that the other tabs were off a little bit.  In the other posts, it shows it 
being played around the 7th and 9th frets but that is incorrect.  I saw an interview in 
Guitar World magazine with Tony Iommi and he said that he's seen a lot of guitarists play 
it that way.  He also mentioned that is the incorrect method.  This is the CORRECT tab. 

Tablature explanation:
h	hammer-on
p	pull-off
pm	palm mute
/	slide
~	bendy
^	bend
