So I recently got an Ibanez RG7321 but I really don't have any idea what I should play on it. So could anyone out there tell me about any bands that play 7 string who's music I might be interested in and maybe even a few songs by them to get started on? I want to hear some bands that play awesome 7 string riffs that consist of more than just powerchords ala Fear Factory. Obviously, I'm mainly into metal but I much prefer the metal that's more melodic and maybe even slightly progressive at times than the repetitive 'chug chug chug' type of metal.

Thanks in advance for your help!

MESHUGGAH!

But then again that is chuga chuga chuga kind of metal. Except for the holdsworth inspired solos of course.

I think a good piece of advice for someone starting out on a 7 would be to try to transpose all that you already know on a 6 to a 7. A great book that does a good job on this is the book on 7 string guitar by Ibanez Endorsee Andy Martin :)
