Hey guys, This question is pretty embarrassing to ask but here goes... I've been thinking about buying a 7 string guitar and honestly Im confused as to how to play it... I know, that sounds pretty dumb. As a 6 string player, mostly using drop c and b tuning, it seems like the low B using standard 7 string tuning would force me to change how I play my bar chords, power chords, etc...
Im a self taught guitarist so I literally dont know shit about music theory, or technical terms... I just play whatever sounds cool to me. Lately I've been stepping up my game, working on becoming a better guitarist, and I've made some drastic improvements on my technical ability to play... So now I wanna up the ante some, add another string into the mix.
So... After your all done laughing at me Can anyone offer some tips for transitioning from a 6 to a 7 string???
Drop the low B to A and play in dropped A. I don't do this because I despise drop tunings (most of the time), but lots of people play dropped A.
