From: Martin Roulston 
Subject: TAB - Vol 4 Album by Black Sabbath - 7 tracks not in OLGA

This is my first attempt at tabbing. I've been working on this for about three
weeks on and off. When I started Supernaut was not in the OLGA but now it is.
My version is different, but I'm not sure if I should add the existing one to
mine or mine to the existing one or just leave it as it is.

I have attatched the text file Vol4.txt to this E mail. I hope it gets to you
Ok. If it doesn't do I have to paste it into this page I'm writing this on? If
you have time I would appreciate a reply letting me know if I've done this ok.


Subject - Album - Vol 4 - by Black Sabbath released 1972

Sent 1 January 1997

Tabbed by Martin (martinjoanadam@hotmail.com)

Tracks Tabbed
1. Wheels of Confusion/Straightener
2. Tomorrow's Dream
3. Changes
4. Supernaut
5. Cornucopia
6. St Vitus Dance
7. Under the Sun

Note 1 - At the time I sent this Snowblind and Laguna Sunrise were already in
the OLGA archive, so I have not included these here.

Note 2 -for a lot of these songs Tony Iommi tuned his guitar down 2 frets so
the bass string was D. I haven't bothered as most can be played without tuning
down. However some are easier to play further up the neck, Tomorrow's Dreams,
for example, so try shifting what I've done up 2 frets to see if feels better.
I've avoided using open strings, where I could to make this easier.

Note 3 - I only have an acoustic guitar, so I tend to play a lot of the notes
that Iommi probably bends to, hammers on, pulls off, etc. Try playing around
with the notes to see if you can get it closer to the original.

All corrections gladly accepted. I would be interested to see how close I got
or other ways of playing these.

Note 4 - I have tried where possible to indicate timing by using 4 dashes to
equal 1 beat so |1---2---3---4---| = 1 bar in 4/4 time

1. Wheels of Confusion

	Long ago I wandered through my mind
	In the land of fairytales and stories
	Lost in happiness I knew no fears
	Innocence and love was all I knew - Was an illusion

	Soon the days were passing into years
	Happiness just didn't come so easy
	Life was bored of fairytales and daydreams
	Innocence was just another word - Was an illusion

Hurts you now, there's never been a winner
Try your hardest, you'll still be a loser

Well I'm leaving tomorrow at daybreak
Catch the fastest train around nine
Yes, I'm leaving he sorrow and heartache
Before it takes me away from my mind

Send me love and I may let you see me
Send me hopes I can spin in my head
But if you really want me to answer
I can only let you know I'm not dead

you tune down to D then shift this up 2 frets.
