So for christmas I got a RG7321, and i;ve been playing around with it for a while now. But i'm getting bored with playing the same 2 songs i know on a 7 sring, so i'm reaching out to you guys for help. I need some good 7 string songs, regardless of difficulty and tuning.

Vai has great seven string work. Nevermore of course is a great choice and Obscura's latest album is all 7's.

Also try looking into other genre, Jazz players can do some wicked walking bass lines with that low B :D

Old KoRn songs. Made me love my 7 string even more. Gotta be tuned in A-Standard though (.11-.50 with a low .70 will be perfect for the tuning). They're super fun and not only get you used to the 7th string, but teach you way different ways of using it. It's really inspiring to be honest. And they're all fairly easy too.

Obscura should be releasing their tab book for Omnivium in the near future. But their songs are far from easy. lol especially this new album.

One of the things I use my UV for is playing songs that were recorded with a guitar tuned down a 1/2 step. I never liked tuning down, so the seven string guitar is great for playing these songs.
