Re: Defining moments in music
Actually he cut the tips off his fingers middle and ringer fingers the last day he worked at a sheet metal factory. He was just set to join the band. So rather then give up guitar, he made little plastic tips for his fingers, used a lighter sting and de-tuned down a third to e flat. That down tuning is considered to have given Black Sabbath a darker more sinister sound. Now everyone is drop tuning down to d and c.
