7 string songs

#1 Post by Balaak » 24 Aug 2011 17:44

Hi, all!

It's been a while since my last post (I think at least a year) but I was wondering if any of you could help me. I recently acquired an Ibanez RG7621 7 string and I'm trying to find some kick-ass songs to play. Seems like all of it is either stupid nu metal, ridiculously boring, or absurdly complex. I've tried playing Mirror by Dream Theater but it's really boring, and Glass Prison is fun but there are parts that are beyond my abilities. Then I've tried some Meshuggah, and while the time signatures are insanely difficult, once you get the main riff down you can play the whole thing. Is there anything else you guys can suggest. PLEASE avoid mentioning Korn or anything of the like.

Thanks!

A band called Persuader, if I remember correctly, uses a 7-string in their newest album, and they're really kickass. Oh, and the vocalist sounds like IFTOS Hansi, albeit a formulaic version :p
I can't think of anything clever to put here.

I love Persuader, I didn't know that they used a 7 string. Thanks!

You can also play downtuned songs with standard tuning and switching to your 7th string. It works.
