Your Lucky Number: Seven Kickass 7-String Guitar Songs
Your lucky number: Peter Hodgson's seven favorite 7-string guitar songs.
Fear Factory, "Descent"
Fear Factory's Dino Cazares was an early pioneer of applying low tunings to thrash-influenced metal, but by the late '90s he was going the other way, using seven-string guitars to increase his range upwards rather than downwards.
A perfect example is "Descent" from Obsolete, where Dino combines a low bassline with higher arpeggios.
The riff itself isn't too tricky from a technical perspective, but it served as a timely reminder to guitarists of the era that there was much more to be done with a seven than just low riffage.
