Your Lucky Number: Seven Kickass 7-String Guitar Songs
Your lucky number: Peter Hodgson's seven favorite 7-string guitar songs.
Korn, "Freak On A Leash"
Korn kickstarted the second wave of seven-string use in the '90s, and they inspired a lot of less-creative copycats who just ran with the low-end aspect of what the band were known for, but the interplay between guitarists Head and Munky on "Freak On A Leash" offers a great lesson in a more atmospheric use of the seven-string.
Creepy high melodies and muddled low chords build tension, then the chorus riff shifts and snakes in a really unique way before the creep sets in again.
