    Yay, a thread made for me! :D

    I second the Jeff Loomis, Animals as Leaders and Planet X recommendations! Also try these:

    On the Virg (Virgil Donati's band before Planet X):


    My own project Relocator, all-instrumental 7-string prog metal / fusion;

    Some awesome stuff here that i hadn't checked out yet. I'm quite surprised though that Voice Gajic hasn't been mentioned yet. Pretty awesome stuff if you can bear with the occasional breakdowns (and the beanies:D):



    EDIT: Shit. just realized that's not a 7 string. Ah well, here's one :)

    That is GREAT! Perfect blend of melody, leads, taste and still heavy. Too many guys are just chugg'n away on the bottom strings these days and have forgotten to play the other 6 or 7! Thanks for this link!

    GRUMUSIC!!
    Everyone should check this stuff out. Awesome. Free download. This is quality music and they were kind enough to offer the free download. Great blend of interesting music that's heavy, melodic and progressive with good production. A step above the norm of djenty repeated riffs. Thanks for this! :yesway:

    Joe Satriani had a song on his album Strange Beautiful Music called Mind Storm that was played on a 7, and I think it's pretty great. There was another song on that album simply called Seven Steing that I didn't think was that good.

    Also, to change things up a bit, Don Ross plays some fingerstyle acoustic songs on baritones and 7s, such as Give Me Seven Reasons, Meanwhile Road and Sweet Sister.
