Okay, here is my dilemma, ever since i first started hearing songs with seven strings in them.
THe first song i heard with a seven string in it was Under It All. I heard it and it completely blew me away. I loved the way that steve presented it, and how he made his chords sound huge. That is what inspired me to consider a seven string, also All About Eve, and some others.(The audience is listening
Now i tried out a black RG seven string at our local guitar center up in summerlin. At first it felt kind of weird, then it felt fine, then weird again after coming back from a six strring. ( A JS
Black pearl) When i went back to the JS
, it just felt more comfortable, but i love the potential that a seven has. i think that i would like to get a UV777BK.
BUT, my parents keep saying that i wouldn't use the seventh string it for a majority of songs, so it really isn't useful. But, since i showed andy, (the other guitarist in my band, Revolution) a UVMC, he loved it and decided to get one. We want to make originals, but not go chugga chugga on the low string, but present it in a unique way.
This is the major problem, summed up. I tried it out, but the neck felt weird, my parents don't think i should get a seven, but my bandmate thinks i should, so we can both play parts on orignals that he or i may make up.
So, my question is, how fast do you get used to the neck,. if at all, and when you go back to the six, does it feel "right" or easier to play, and should i plan on getting a JEM7VWH, my parent's side, or a UV777BK, andy's side?
PLEASE post your responses!
