    Hello,

    I am Gar. I have played 6 string guitar for 20 years. I have had the pleasure of touring Europe and recording with Steve Albini, albeit at an amateur, unknown level. I took up drums again just before my first daughter was born. We have a boy on the way so thought it'd be a great idea to take up 7 string.

    I like the sound of a 7, though I don't listen to many bands that use them. I have a Korn cd in my collection somewhere and some detuned 6 string Slipknot but wouldn't call myself a fan but more a casual listener. I was big into Vai in my early years so thought a Universe might be a good introduction to a 7. Just 'won' a UV777pbk on Ebay last night, '06 model with the laminate neck (looks cool) and an Edge Pro (be alright, not a heavy trem user).

    Don't know what I am gonna do with a 7 yet but it'll be fun finding out. The biggest appeal to me is creating new chord voicings, big sounding chords and using the B string to extend scales. We'll see how that goes.

    See ya on the boards,
    Cheers
