I was wondering if it would be easier to play metal songs (i.e. Slipknot's new album) on a 7 string? If so, how would I go about doing the tuning? I read through most tabs, and it seems like I'd just have to drop the low B one whole step, but then the G would have to be down tuned a half step? Is that really all I'd have to do?
My Gear:
Fender Squier VM Jazz Bass
Ibanez RGD7421
Jackson DXMG
Line 6 Pod X3
yep, that would be drop a

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...
Correct tuning, but playing on a 7 string is a little different, you'd be better off getting a baritone. They're made for that stuff.
