Animated Paranoid tab by Black Sabbath on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This tune is a true rock legend. Easy to play, and fun - Paranoid by Black Sabbath is a definite 'must-learn' for any rock guitarist.

In the ActionTab, simply follow the powerchord progressions and keep palm-muting with downstrokes. Try practicing it slowly until you can get the chord changes fast enough to speed up the tune.

Intro - Lots of hammers. Will be trickiest part for most people, but just go slow until you get it. Then speed it up.

Verses - Consistent palm muted downstrokes on the E5 and D5. End the riff with open striking the G5 - D5 - E5 and G slide down and repeat.

There is an alternate Break used between some of the verse riffs. This is similar to the Chorus, which is really easy - just swapping between the E5 and D5!

That is all the song segments!
