sorry if this is the wrong place to put this but here goes anyways.

So i learned Black Sabaths Paranoid i can play it all including solo all the way thrue but. ive gone back to it to look at my technique in regards to the rythym.

i play it purely downstrumming Does Iommi play it downstrumming or downup?

i could just keep playing it like the way i do but its a technique i need to get a hang off big time. i can palm mute playing just down strokes like i say but i find it very difficult to palm mute when playing down up on those power chords.

help tips and advice on this would be great thanks.

You mean the verses and that? It's downpicking as far as I'm concerned. Often power chord rhythms like that are played palm muted and downstroked.

Punk and metal rhythm guitar relies on the downpicked muting for the aggressive chugging sound- alternate picking just doesn't sound as good. Hence the glory which Hetfield gets.
Dude, where's my band?
