Re: Is it difficult to transition back and forth between 6 and 7 string??
At first it took some getting use to. But after awhile the transition is almost seamless.
However, I've found that how easily you adapt greatly depends on where you take your point of reference from. If your point of reference is the low E, then it'll take a bit extra time to get use to moving away from that reference (cause the low B's in the way).
When I got my first seven the first thing I did was play every single 6 string song I know on the 7, and ignore the low B.
After that, everything was good, and I started to incorporate the low B, and learn some actual 7 string songs written for 7 strings. Now I go back and forth without thinking. But whenever I'm on a 6 I miss the lower register.
