Eternal Sabbath - A Tribute To Black Sabbath

Did you guys take breaks of 10 minutes in between the songs? The atmosphere is pretty relaxed.

For a first gig, I'd say pretty good! Devil and Daughter sounds a lot like Children of the Grave without keyboards. :)

Hey, Foro. Pretty relaxed, indeed, and also after Nib, there were 6 or 7 songs in a row which were to be played in C# as they were originally recorded, but my SG's A string broke as a friend was starting to take care of the tuning process. So, we had to put our singer in a fireproof test by making him sing a third higher from the original keys, which is also the way Sabbath did on the Never Say Die tour and DVD A Decade Of Black Sabbath. I'd say that he pulled out much better than I was expecting.

Thanx for the comments. There are more videos coming refer to the former post of mine to check 'em out. Cheers to all.

Listened to War Pigs so far, you guys did a good job.  Even the singer works for the song, and that's usually my main problem with Sabbath covers.

Liked that a lot Jeff. Thanks for posting.

Odd question, but what came first the left-handed guitar playing, or the love of Iommi?
The reason I ask is I shoot a hockey stick left, and swing a baseball bat and a golf club left.
When I first picked up a guitar I wanted to play it left. Holding it right-handed felt very uncomfortable.
But there seemed to be too many obstacles and not enough reasons to fight through them, so I went with the crowd and forced myself to learn right-handed.
Now it feels natural, but I sometimes wonder if I would have been better off (meaning a better player) had I gone the left-handed route.
How did that come together for you?

Thanx for the compliments, Don and Mckindog (he sings a bit for the inside instead of unleash his vocal power to the outside, but the road and the practicing will make good for him, I'm sure). Mckindog, I and my two older sisters are all left handed (our parents and none of our known relatives are not left handed, excepet for a cousin). I always did everything with my left hand and foot. When I started playing, I didn't even dream knowing who was Tony Iommi, but always positioned the guitar in my left hand and went on to discover how to invert the strings to make it easier for my playing; one year after started playing acoustic, though, I discovered Black Sabbath through a compilation CD and then I was immedeately mesmerized by its music and by knowing Iommi was left handed, I was even more excited to discover and dissect his style. So, he didn't enter my musical life for nothing. He is my ultimate musical master and through Black Sabbath, I discovered how to listen to all kinds of good music.

The most important I have to keep is a gift and no one can't take it away from me, nor can buy it. I take good care of myself. Hope you do the same. Cheers. :)

Alright! Have a praise!

Good job on the Iron Man solo!  :ok:

Will you play more shows?

Oh, and set list can't get any better :). Glad to see some fans of Johnny Blade!

Thanx for the compliments, dude. We'll play more shows, for sure, and the next one I'm aware of will be in February, at a local festival. The set lists will always be in a different order than the previous one, with or without new songs, but we'll have more new tunes for the February gig(s). Johnny Blade is one of Sabbath's best from Sabbath's best album. Classic!!! :edmetal:
We did our third gig, last night and due to the bad weather and bad organization, we didn't performed as we wanted (13 minutes of our set were cut and we were told it was our last song when we played only 5, but we rehearsed and counted the time we were given for this festival with 12 songs and ended up playing 9). Here's the set list and links, in order:

War Pigs - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vPrWCOCmQU

You sound so much like Iommi it's scary. You're even left handed! I don't have any tips as I don't know any of those songs on guitar. Watching that made me want to learn War Pigs though.  :edmetal:

Great. One of my main goals is to inspire others to play and learn music, even if it's not my own music, yet, which I hope people dig when they're available for the masses.

Any tips you and others might want, just drop me a PM. Cheers, man. :edmetal:
