Think I originally posted this in the wrong forum.

Getting back into guitar after a two-decade layoff and there's a 3-note section in Paranoid (an otherwise easy song) that's driving me nuts.

It a variation to the 12-14 | 10-12 | 10-12 (5th-4th strings) | 10-12 | 12-14 main riff that you can hear in the original track. None of the tabs I've seen show the variation, and none of the "How to play Paranoid" videos on YouTube that I've seen explain it.

But the guy in this video completely nails it at 1:11 - 1:12. Can anyone explain what he's doing here? It's driving me bonkers!

I think it's something like this :

G|----12--11-----------
D|----12--12----14----
A|---------------- 14----
E|------------------------

I'm not too sure about this...

Yes! That's exactly it! Sounds bang on the money! Man I was fiddling around the 11th and 12th frets based on that video and the original track and I just couldn't get it. But you nailed it, thanks again!

The 11-12 on D-G you suggested might even just be 11-11. The 11-11 is certainly easier to play cleanly and quickly. But no doubt it's one or the other. Awesome!

No problem, keep rocking ! \m/
But you can play it the way you want, if it's sounds good for you ^^
