Its a sad day for the seven string guitar playing community...



Count the strings! Poor Chris has to feel neutered. I know I do every time I pick up a sixer that isn't tuned in some strange 5ths based tuning.

I guess at least it isn't a Dean

Why doesn't he just use his 7 in Megadeth? Not like it'll hurt anything.

What a shame.

Wow does that sixxer ever look small on him. So used to seeing him play 7s. They suit him better looks wise and play wise.

I think i remember hearing somewhere that dave wanted him to play 6s so he could really dig into the low string for a heavier attack.

though i believe its a direct result of dave mustaine being a bitch, in the end, i gotta agree. Doesnt ....ing matter, cause he's not really using the extra range in the band, and if i were in megadeth, i'd want to keep dave off my back, too.

I would've loved to hear some 7-string Megadeth. But this one picture doesn't necessarily mean Chris will never ever use a 7 in the future...

I'm well aware that Chris does and will continue to use 7 strings in non Megadeth stuff, but he DID use the extended range for easier fingerings and soloing. I find that "digging ing" stuff to be a complete load of bull crap. I dig in on my low E just fine with the extra string. I can play old school Ride the Lightning era Metalica on an unboosted recto with the gain turned down, which requires A LOT more "digging in" than any Megadeth song at faster speeds, and Chris way way out plays me. I think it is just Dave trying to control every aspect of the band yet again. I think Chris had LACS put the giant band logo on the guitar just for a laugh knowing he probably won't use the guitar for much else.

If the man plays a sixer, let him play a sixer. There's nothing wrong about sixers and sex.
But i think that it's just the hate towards the extended range instruments from Dave's side. If you hate any instrument you're not a musician. A seven doesn't sound that different from a sixer and that "digging in" thing is just bullshit. Someone's got a huge ego here and he's letting it out on the band members. Not very mature.

The man speaks the truth

I don't think it's nice, you laughing. You see, my mule don't like people laughing. Gets the crazy idea you're laughing at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it...

You've gotta think about it in the long run. Yeah Dave can be a dick (If he isn't already.. Though, he seems different in a sense lately?) and all and he prolly told him to use 6 strings, but megadeth as always been tuned in E standard. If Chris broderick decided to bust in on them and throw some low B Jag Panzer/Nevermore style (Actually A#, but I doubt he tunes to that in megadeth ) into the riffing mix, that'd makes things a tad harder to mix with daves tuning without him always doing something alongsing the likes of lead without him having to change to B standard tuning. I'm sure that+vocals wouldn't be very fun. Not to mention, they might have to throw a 5 string bass into the mix if they did, since megadeth's recent basslines typically follow the rhythm and go a tad more unnoticed than their earlier stuff. It's just require everyone to change their methods in order to make things in the band work out. Then, imagine Chris leaving in the later future (which will more than likely happen as we all know..) What'd happen to them then? Would they try to recruit Jeff Loomis once again, who they denied when he auditioned when he was like 16 or 17?

Chances are, he just has that 6 string because eitherway, he won't be using the low B for anything in megadeth. For now, at least. Who knows? We might actually see some low B in the new album coming up, but I think it's very unlikely due to finding somewhere to place it in a standard tuning mix. So if we do, it'll be very minimal, and prolly during solos and the such. All I can say is listen for some potential wide sweeps on the new album

EDIT: Though I should add, I play my sixer just as much as I play my 7 string. It's just they're two completely different feeling instruments, and they suit different uses better than the other. Low B is naturally heavy sounding and usually results in a much heavier sounding mix when distorted than E does, but in turn, also sounds very soothing when clean(Think Nevermore - Tomorrow Turned Into Yesterday's cleans). Ironic? :P I have a hard time getting as powerful of a chug tone on my 6 compared to my 7. On my 6, I usually have to pump up the lows and highs and gain, and dip the mids a tad bit. Maybe even drop tune it to D or C#. Also I should add, my 6 string is mahogany while my 7 is Alder. It takes alot lol.

I continue to be amazed... why is there this feeling that if you play a 7, suddenly everything is in B? Erm... there's still a low E string... hello little E string! Right there beside big Mr. B.... you're so cute!... and I can still play you as much as I want, you're still special to me, and apparently to Mr. Mustaine over there. He likes you, and so do I. We'll just keep Mr. B around because... HOLY SHIT, there's actually B notes in TONS of other keys!!! WHO KNEW!!@#@!! LOOK! If I play this E pentatonic scale (in 12th position of course!).... HOT DAMN. There's a B in there! Perhaps I might be able to use Mr. B after all!

I liked Chris using his 7-string and somehow I think the sixer may be a little limiting. Hope it's just temporary
