    Hmmm..any Black Sabbath (re-learning all the tuned down stuff on 7 :cool: ), anything else from Metal Church to Dream Theater to Tony Mcalpine to Suzanne Vega to Jimi. Whatever I fancy really. Still getting used to 7. Love taking it to jam nights and watching people looking at it, but not quite figuring out what it is :D. Most people I meet had never heard of one. BTW played a prototype 8 string by Doug Campbell of Blackmachine. Beautiful construction, but don't think I need one. Peace :cool:

    ohh, rock! i'll have to check it out then. i thought (blindly obviously) that JP used a 6string tuned to C on the whole album. but, why would he limit himself like that? :nuts:

    Depends on how I'm feeling at the time, and what I think I need to work on.

    If I'm working on my rhythm playing it's usually: Iced Earth, Kreator, Megadeth, or Death.

    If I'm working my crappy shred playing it's: Satriani, Macalpine(I like to sorta 'play along' with Maximum Security, even though I can't play much if any of it, good for improv though), and, believe it or not, Jpop. Playing along to the melodies of some Jpop, like Ayumi Hamasaki or Megumi Hayashibara, actually improves my phrasing, and gets me out of ruts. :)

    Agreed, Sevendust rocks.

    Favorite disc to jam along to? Buckethead, "Colma." It's incredibly chill, trip-hop-y acoustic guitar, very mellow, very atmospheric, and absolutely terrific to solo over.

    Also, of late, I've got a couple roguh backings for songs I'm working on that I jam on- working out ideas, etc.
