    Ok last night I was searching the net for 7 String Chords...I kinda play my own, and I also found a program that has a bunch of chords for 7 strings...however, they look funny. I really like what HateBreed did on another post, that was easy to follow and understand...so if anyone has some time on their hands, I know that is asking alot...thanks!

    I've been meaning to do a chording lesson for 7-strings over at www.extendedrangeguitar.com for quite some time- I'll try to do it this week and get it up over there. ;)

    Ahh, see, I'm big on theory. It's useful, in a pinch. ;)

    haha, good catch, uploaded it like 5 minutes ago.

    Yeah, I resized one of the pics- it's nopt quite that creme in person, apparently (too bad, i sorta like it), and you can't see the occasional ding and chip (which I rather like- there's something hot about vintage-y white guitars that have taken some abuse, a fondness that probably dates back to my roots as a strat/blues nut, lol). I'm just working out payment method now, and hopefulyl will have a check (or similar form of currency) out tonight.

    Aside from the green one (just cause of the maple board), this is probably my favorite UV model. It's a tossup between this and the 777, of course, but both are probably the most mature offerings on the table, and all I'm playing live of late is blues and blues rock, so that counts for something... ;)

    OK guys, I'm trying something new...I used an online program called Guitar Codex, and I merged a B tuning and a reg tuning and clipped out a 7 string scale...what do you think:
    Harmonic Minor in C and the second Roumanian Minor

    if you want strange scales try thr harmonic major(1,2,3,4,5,b6,7) its a very unstable scale it has strange modes like lydian b3
