I've been thinking about getting a seven string lately. I thought of the tuning ADADFAD, basically Open D Minor with a low A on it too. Do any of you guys know any bands that use this tuning? I'd be curious to see how they use it. Cheers!

divine heresy, deftone..i think...and most of deathcore band use 7 strings


looks like somebody didn't read carefully...

I don't know of any, but I know Devin Townsend uses open C (CGCGCE) for some of his projects, so maybe that would give you some ideas?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Some Opeth songs are in open D minor, mostly on Ghost Reveries I think. They just use the six-string tuning, but you could add in the low A too in certain parts.

That's EXACTLY where I got the inspiration . I love that album, and I really like how they use the tuning, so I was curious if there were any bands that used a seven string version of the tuning.

Also, Nickpocalypse, I ALMOST searched for stuff by "Golf." ALMOST .

ADADFAD...

I'd have to say Golf. Golf is definitely ADADFAD.

I'll show myself out.

You could easily incorporate the low A into the particular songs you're mentioning (Opeth ) and it would add a lot of body, imo. Sounds a reasonable idea for a tuning.
