Black Sabbath: Sweet Leaf (Geezer Butler’s Isolated Bass)

Bass legend Geezer Butler turns 68 years old today, and we’re celebrating with a killer isolated bass track from one of my favorite Black Sabbath songs: “Sweet Leaf.”

It’s the opening track from 1971 album, Master of Reality, and besides being a heavy song, it’s a great example of Butler’s style. He lays down the riffs with a huge, sludgy tone, accenting each with his signature fills. He really lets loose in the instrumental section, too.

Happy birthday, Geezer!
