I'm a 52 year old extreme/prog metal lover who has played guitar for 35+ years. But for the past 20 I've mostly noodled on my acoustics or borrowed one of my pro guitarist nephew's 7-strings. I just bought my own: a Schechter KM-7 MKII that I have fallen in love with. It's perfect in every way and feels so silky in my hands. The Seymour Duncan Nazgûl and Sentient pups are bliss. So, I guess the nephew is going to be giving me some lessons and getting me rocking. I've been working on some Conquering Dystopia riffs via the Guitar Pro HD tab app on my iPad. I've just splurged on a nice little pedal board, which I am currently running through my little Peavy Vypyr or a borrowed 6150+ combo. I love the latter, but am looking for other recommendations for a tube combo that would be good for my basement riffing and would also serve me in a small bar/club should I decide to cover my bald head and pretend like I'm twenty years younger and get a band going. Any advice is appreciated. I am also looking for some links to some good chord voicing charts for 7-strings.
