Your Lucky Number: Seven Kickass 7-String Guitar Songs
Your lucky number: Peter Hodgson's seven favorite 7-string guitar songs.
Dream Theater, "A Change Of Seasons"
Much like "I Would Love To," John Petrucci's work on "A Change Of Seasons" is a great example of how to use the seven-string guitar to play things you couldn't play on either a regular six-string guitar in standard tuning or on a baritone.
He zips all around the neck, making full use of the seven-string's range in clean and distorted settings, on supportive rhythms, blindingly intricate passages, wailing solos and crushing riffs. Yet at no point does the choice of instrument distract from the song itself.
