Prime Cuts: Dimebag Darrell Chooses His 12 Favorite Tunes in 1993 Guitar World Feature
In 1993, Pantera's six-shooting Texas tornado pumped up his 12 favorite tunes -- hair-raising, fist-pumping metal classics that every self-respecting guitarist should know.
"Children Of The Sea"
BAND: Black Sabbath
ALBUM: Heaven And Hell (Warner Bros., 1980)
GUITARIST: Tony Iommi
"We used to play that song live. The acoustic intro has some great dynamics, and then Tony kicks in with this simple but hard riff, kind of like 'Smoke On The Water.' Iommi had a monstrous guitar sound on that album. And he had that skidding vibrato technique that was so quick and killer. He hardly ever does a slow vibrato. He started all that de-tuning stuff, which I really learned from him."
