Your Lucky Number: Seven Kickass 7-String Guitar Songs
Your lucky number: Peter Hodgson's seven favorite 7-string guitar songs.
Jeff Loomis, "Jato Unit"
Loomis' seven-string skills are put to great use on this monster.
Big octave melody lines, low palm-muted riffage, wide arpeggios, whammy bar dives, syncopated rhythms -- this one is a great song to sharpen your skills, and, if you're a proficient six-string player making the transition to seven for the first time, it's a great one to cut your teeth on.
Make it to the end and you can truly call yourself a seven-string guitarist.
