Tony Iommi, Black sabbath's lead guitarist shows riffs from war pigs and also plays the first solo. He then explains how he constucts his solos and goes on to play the paranoid solo.

Also, if you're wondering, "What's on his fingers?" it's because when Tony was 17 years old he was working in a sheet metal factory. On his last day of work, just before he was about to tour´╗┐ Europe with the band "The Birds & The Bees", a machine in the factory cut the tips off of his 2 middle fingers on his fretting hand. Rather than giving up playing he made his own fake finger tips and adopted a new technique of playing using mainly his index finger and pinky. So that is what you're seeing, his prosthetic fingertips.
