                during this part (G) Iommi plays the open G string
                1 octive higher that shown.  I play the G on the 3rd
                fret of the E string because of my absence of a bass.

tune down a step and a half then play it,the first chord after the intro is a standard D,you are correct about the finger picking.

Not even close, thats the CRAZIEST way Ive ever seen this tabbed out. Start with the proper tuning which is C# Standard (the way it was recorded)
