I did use search function first but didnt find exactly what i am looking for. Id like suggestion for 7 string bands who are not just tech death and if they tune to drop A thats even better. I prefer thrash, doom, swedish death metal, even power metal. Instrumental is cool too. Non metal would be great as well. Any 7 string rock jazz or fusion guys out there? Ive been playing 6 string since I was 15 which happens to also be 15 years ago. I recently played a 7 string and ive become really enamored with them I cant wait to acquire one and start writing on it. Ive found a few bands who I like who tune to drop A which is the tuning i intend to use. To me thats almost like getting to write with a drop tuning and a standard tuning at the same time. Pretty cool. The bands i like ive found so far that are drop A are Scar Symmetry and Thy Art Is Murder . ive also been digging Nevermore. I think they tune to standard B.
