If 7 strings were used way back then, it'd be a different world today. Prolly even crazier!
If 7's were used by Sabbath it would've been doom straight from the get-go instead of having Sleep, Electric Wizard, Orange Goblin and all those guys come along
Here are some band I think should try 7s:
Lamb Of God
Scars of Life
Then they would be able to play their whole catalog on 1 guitar (D-standard, Drop-C, and D-standard with a low A)
Loves me some 'Deth.
Pantera. With MegaDave a close second.
I voted Pantera...I would have loved to hear Dime tear shit up on a 7.
And this sorta goes along with the conversation...I wish that Chimaira had kept using 7-strings, as they could have done some cool shit there.
Pantera on the basis that Dime's riffs are the most suitable to a seven. Though this argument could be made for Sabbath, or even Zeppellin in a different context.
I think most of Maiden and Megadeth's music is perfectly suited to the range they play in.
Though Hallowed Be Thy Name would be bad ass played in the same key on a seven.
I have to say Pantera, because in my honest opinion thrash works best out of that lower register (say, riffs based around the A string as opposed to E, let alone B). Pantera could've made it work though for more groove oriented stuff
Iron fuckin maiden
also, I think Metallica could have good riffs on seven strings guitars.
If only Cynic was on the list......
i think pantera would have impacted SO many more people than the rest (other than metallica) simply because dime was (and is) a god. imagine 5 min alone or walk or cowboys or floods in 7 string form. pure jizz.
I imagine Cynic would use it as a very rhythmic tool like Steve Vai has done and just transpose things or do the odd note here and there but nothing super brutal on them
Well since you didn't have Coroner or Voivod (naughty boy), I voted Maiden, since they are, well Maiden.
i agree with voivod.....if you are talking about there first 2 albums
+1 to the scumdogs of the universe.
tallica and megadeth would be awesome
i love the tone on ...And Justice For all imagine that with 7's jesus christ
AC/DC. Two more chords to use !
This guy knows what's up
