I am a relatively beginning guitar player. I have a Dean Vendetta 7-string. I actually bought it because it was a better deal than the 6-string I was looking at. I am working on learning how to use the extra string, my guitar playing skills are a work in progress. I suck at the moment. Anyway, I really like bands like Candlemass, Black Sabbath, Reverend Bizzare, and the doom stuff. I really really love low frequencies, and heavy as hell riffs.(I am not a nu-metal chug-junkie, I know what it means to actually play an instrument) I'm just not sure how low I can practically go. I'd like some clarity in my notes too, not just a muddy mess, but I think that has just as much to do with my amp and stuff as with my guitar.I'd like to do to Candlemass what they did to Black Sabbath. I like their style of doom, but I'd like to take it to a new level. I have my guitar tuned in F# standard right now. F#BEADF#B. I like the sound that comes from it, but since I need to learn a lot about playing it, I need a tuning that I can apply to other music, so I can learn other songs. I read tab, not real sheet music, but I have a basic understanding of how music works. Anyway, advise away. Hopefully I get some answers soon.
