Ok I don't know if this thread has ever been done (probably has).. But lets talk about who inspired us to pick up 7-strings. And as always... I would have to say my biggest influences for gettin my 7 were Dino Cazares (the fuckin man!)... ...Also, I gotta say Stephen Carpenter from the Deftones is a big influence on my playing... ...And all the early stuff from Korn was a big influence.. Head and Munky kicked ass on those 1st few albums.
