    Been posting a few times, figure I would introduce myself.

    I'm 32 for a reference. As a kid I grew up with my parents radio playing a lot of old motown which I learned to play bass too and still love, and they would also play a lot of old surf music. When I got into the heavier stuff, is also the time I decided I wanted to play guitar. So when buying a guitar came around, at that time all the bands I liked had 7 string guitars. I found I prefer the larger necks of a seven string and tend to always have one of some sort and now have a couple 8's that I prefer for comfort and enjoy the extra low notes. Despite also having a strong love for metal, I never found much enjoyment in playing it. But I found a love for playing surf and using the extra low strings into the style. Most the surf sites aren't very open to it because they don't have the traditional look, and generally all the players are twice my age. People seem more open minded here, so eventually Ill post and share some surf using the extended range.
