    mod edit: let's keep it to one thread in the appropriate section please

    What are you guys playing in your 7 strings while in B? I'll start it off with some of what I play.

    Torn Between Scylla and Charybdis - Trivium
    Throes of Perdition - Trivium
    Shogun - Trivium
    Born - Nevermore
    A Change Of Seasons - Dream Theater
    The Count of Tuscany - Dream Theater
    A Nightmare To Remember - Dream Theater

    Yeah I guess I clicked the wrong link sorry guys. And yeah, A Nighmare To Remember is in C but I figured that out after I had already learned it. Plus it's only a half step away from B so I figured, Ehh why not. Same with Born.

    Technically, a 7 string guitar is still an extended range instrument :) All are welcome in my eyes

    Anything by Scale the Summit. They have tab books for sale too. Lots of tapping and stuff too. Thinking about picking one up for technique.

    I'd really like to learn some Unearth. Zombie Autopilot is on my list to conquer one day, along with My Will Be Done and Crow Killer. I'm pretty sure those are in B
