    I'm looking for the chords to Iron Man by Black Sabbath, particularly over the solo so I can better identify the changes and what parts Geezer is using as transitions, etc. I have the tab but no notation or anything.

    Funny video!...horrible actually..haha. The tab I have for Geezer's line is predominately C#'s with some fills thrown in. I'm not sure there is an accurate tab of the solo out there, was looking to "chug" away on some root notes at some point.

    I just listened to it and it sounds like all C#minor pentatonic during the solo, so I think you've probably got it. Alternating between the low C# and an octave up, just using the scale to go between the two.

    Gotcha..the tab I have has a lot of shifts between the low and high C# octaves...thanks for confirming!
