    Hey guys, what do you think is the best metal band for really technical 7 string stuff? I'm mostly into death metal, but really any metal, except nu metal.(sorry) :dime: :imnew: I just want something really technical that will push what I can do with a 7 string guitar.:shred:

    Isn't Necrophagist in D Standard or am I mistaken?

    but transpose it down to B if you want to play it there. Transposing music is some of the most important things you can learn, take your favorite song and transpose it to ever key on as many strings as possible.

    True, could do that. I was just curious either way.

    I use guitarpro for that type of stuff, real easy.

    You dont need anything new just because it has one extra string. Treat it like a guitar man, do what it is u do on a 6 string just be mindful of the extra one. If u want a suggestion as to what to jam along to i highly recommend Unearth. It's technical but it's soulful and groovy too. Good ol thrash, dont go over the top with Necrophagist n stuff, that's just being technical for the sake of it, it's not music.

    I'd strongly strongly disagree with that statement.

    I agree with you on both counts. Unearth isnt very technical, and Necrophagist is badass.

    hahahaha, I use guitarpro to sometimes, One of the best function of that program is that you can transpose it to mandolin/violin tuning also. I had a cannibal corpse period a couple of month back, resulting in me shredding CC on the mandolin, my wife was not happy :D
