Anyone have any kewl lessons for 7-string guitar??? - ....

I remember seeing some tips/lessons somewhere b4 but I don't exactly remember where...

Anyway I'm sure this would be useful to a lot of people, but does anyone have any tips/tricks/lessons regarding utilizing the 7th string? Maybe some kewl chord patterns and such?

Thanks

-Mike

You should check out Rob Baliducci { did i spell that correctly ? }'s website, he has some various lessons posted on his there. I don't remember if it's Baliducci.com or RobBaliducci.com...oh well, try it out. Ben

Anyone have any kewl lessons for 7-string guitar???

one of the interesting things i'm using the added string for is making an entire 7 (distinct) note scale a chord.
to me this can be a great pandora's box.
the following assumes standard tuning
with the lowest string tuned to B.

e.g. apply 1 b2 b3 4 5 b6 b7 to B major:
B major: B C# D# E F# G# A# B
giving:
B phrygian: B C D E F# G A B

get each note on 1 of the 7 strings: an easy moveable form:
(high E str)* * * E
* * * * * * * * * * *C
* * * * * * * * * * *G
* * * * * * * * * * *D
* * * * * * * * * * *A
* * * * * * * * * * *F#
(low B str) * * * B

i like working within phyrgian and lydian, so i'll make a working lydian form:
applying 1 2 3 #4 5 6 7 to B major:
*B C# D# E# F# G# A# B
an easy moveable form (though the B is not the lowest *
note):
* * * * * * * * * * *G#
* * * * * * * * * * *D#
* * * * * * * * * * *A#
* * * * * * * * * * *E#
* * * * * * * * * * *B
* * * * * * * * * * *F#
* * * * * * * * * * *C#

secure a (preferably inspired/thought out) strumming
sequence. if possible strum a form in a recording. pan it left. then repeat but with another form, pan right.
etc. another good way to get oriented with it is to (preferably on a synth/piano) work out some distinctly inspired melodies. maybe the first for a cheesy classic sci fi film segment, *etc. then work on putting these 'semantics' into chords. hope this helps.
