My friend: I just had an argument with a girl I know. She was saying how it's unfair that if a guy ....s a different girl every week, he's a legend, but if a girl ....s just two guys in a year, she's a slut. So in response I told her that if a key opens lots of locks, then it's a master key. But if a lock is opened by lots of keys, then it's a shitty lock.

DL said in an interview in Decibel magazine that the whole album was done on 8's.
They tune UP though, to drop F#, I believe.

There was no 7-string usage by them, actually. They transitioned directly from 6 to 8. The new album is definitely in Drop F#.

They definitely do. They're always played 6's and haven't heard or them using 7's or 8's on any of their songs.

they play 6-strings live cause they still have like three other albums of material that's tuned to drop a or G# or whatever it is.

Keith Merrow uses 8's on a couple tracks, and his music is available for free download, along with several Guitar Pro tabs!

Divine Heresy
Fear Factory
El Scar
Dead By April
Defect Noises (Also uses a 10 string)
Monuments
M.A.N (Massive Audio Nerve)
Interlock (USed 7 strings, but tuned pretty damn low from the sounds of it)
Less Than Three
Metalien
Nociceptor (Believe I heard that 8 strings will be on the new album)


We should have a sticky thread recommending bands that use 8 strings, or tunings lower than F#. We get a lot of people come in asking for 8 string bands and that would make it easier. Something in the vein of Demoniac's Industrial thread.

What?

If you have an 8 string, the standard tuning is F#. There is no tuning up.

Yeah, but he wrote drop F#, which would be tuning all strings except the F# up a whole step, or having your guitar tuned to G# standard and then dropping the G# to F#.

Periphery uses 6 and 7 strings. Bulb tole me himself when we chatted at a show.

My band Maximus will showcase my 8 string. You bet I'll have clips up when we record.

I was pretty sure Scale the Summit was entirely 7 strings. At least, I'm positive Carving Desert Canyons is.

I tune my 8 string up 1 and a half steps to ADGCFADG. Some people tune up 2 and a half steps to BEADGBEA.
