I know more of you owe some homage to the man!

BOW!

twas a year or two ago. He played with Torche. It was in support of Lifeline. He played quite a long set actually. This is how cool JKB is....he invited the crowd to come to brooklyn to hang out at a party he was DJing. He seemed like such a super nice and humble dude. I cant wait to hear the next actual album he puts out.

I just checked out some of your music and I love it! I find it absolutely amazing. I will definitely be checking out the albums ASAP.

It's also great to see a musician like you so close up in the NW, it seems almost every musician I find around here is either into indie music or technical and/or brutal death metal.

can't lie...it was koRn. i was obsessed with them when i was a young teenager couldn't afford an ibanez so i bought my c-7. i l8r started liking much heavier music and now play death metal but i think they pretty much started it all.

I bought my first 7 as an impulse buy at a pawn shop. As soon as I got home I tuned it to Bb and the first song I played was either New Millennium Cyanide Christ, or Born. So there we go. Meshuggah and Nevermore.

I knew korn had 7 strings since i was a little kid, but i never cared.

1: Jeff Loomis. when i was like 13 he was the shit for me.

2:Rusty Cooley. he used to do guitar clinics all over the place and i met him a few times

i would say steve vai but what the hell does he use the universe for? his songs are never that low.

It all started when I listened to KoRn back in middle school...had no clue they used 7 strings since I didn't play guitar till after middle school. I always digged their sound. Then as I started playing 6 string I just wanted to go lower and lower with my tuning so it was a natural thing. But that was influence mainly by people like:
Loomis:

Cooley:

Keith Merrow:

John Petrucci:

i might catch a lot of shit for this but i really became aware of seven strings after i started listening to bands like Whitechapel, Suicide Silence, and Impending Doom. After i saw Oceano's old guitarist playing a C-7 ATX at a show i knew i had to have it.

Korn, Bulb/Periphery, and Meshuggah. mostly the two second ones, particularly Bulb. Korn just put it's existence and low tuned sound in my head.

Steve Vai as actually the first artist that got me interested in 7 strings surprisingly, the concept of the 7 string guitar was just really awesome to me. Later I discovered other artists that used 7's, namely Loomis and Petrucci...now I'm trapped forever! D:

Well, I'd been listening to Korn, Deftones, and Vai for ages, and then I discovered Dream Theater, which really piqued my interest in a 7-string, but it wasn't until seeing Suicide Silence and Megadeth live (back when Chris still used his seven at least once a night) that really got me wanting one.

I was first introduced to seven strings with Dream Theater/John Petrucci. I thought it would be cool to have one. Then I heard Misha Mansoor's music, and I realized that I needed one.

more often than not its just the rhythm tracks that use all 7 strings on his earlier records. thats why for more or less his entire repetoire HIS lead part can be played on 6 strings, which he clearly prefers
