Learn how to play Electric Funeral by Black Sabbath. Beginners, you can rock this one too. The riffs are simple enough.

Interesting details from Songfacts: Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi explains that the band would often play any given song in lots of different ways, but once they recorded a version in the studio, any quirks and oddities of the recording dictated how they played it from then on. In his book Iron Man: My Journey through Heaven and Hell with Black Sabbath, Iommi writes, “When we recorded ‘Electric Funeral’… Bill would play it differently every bloody time. He didn’t know how many times to come in, and at certain parts he plays three instead of four. [in the studio] we kept the three. And to this day we still play it that way.”

Lyrics

Reflex in the sky warn you you’re gonna die
Storm coming, you’d better hide from the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage
Plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
Dying world of radiation, victims of mad frustration
Burning globe of oxy’n fire, like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down to a cracking ground
Rivers turn to wood, ice melting to flood
Earth lies in death bed, clouds cry water dead
Tearing life away, here’s the burning pay

Electric funeral
Electric funeral
Electric funeral
Electric funeral

And so in the sky shines the electric eye
Supernatural king takes earth under his wing
Heaven’s golden chorus sings, hell’s angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to hell, ever trapped in burning cell
