Is a 7 string guitar so different? my own experience

7-string guitars for more bass range without losing high notes ...

The standard tuning of the 7-string guitar is one of the most important notes of the B series (EADGBe). Of course, the pitch depends on the taste and intensity of the guitar, so you can tune a 6-string guitar to 2.5 tones below the size of the guitar, but it will go out of a search for some high notes. 7 strings are also good for versatility, just equated one having a normally tuned guitar and another B. tuned for the videos, despite the appearance, are two 6 string bass =) from what I saw about the first, was made for be used with a tuning the eighth below the guitar standard (EADGBe) and not starting with B, search for the name of the two instruments on google that has a lot.


The 7 String Guitar, really:

  • Has 5 bass notes (When the 7th string is tuned in B)
  • Usually used for metal.
  • But Not only metal, but a lot of people also start using 7 strings guitar because is more comfortable ( my reason).

However, The 7th String creates a comfortable region for playing chords with a much larger Tessitic.

And that gives us the freedom to play any style of music. Not just metal.

It is difficult to play?

This guitar has strings at a closer distance, so you will have to take some time to get used to it. At first, you will bump your fingers on the other strings while playing. And it will be more complicated to use a pick or perform techniques like tapping or even fingering. So at first, it will be as if you are learning to play again.

I liked the 7 Strings guitar so much, everyone can check the first time I've played my Ibanez RG 7321 :
