Ok, so I just got a seven-string a few days ago so of course, I had to make up some riffs, so here they are.

Obviously, they could still be played on a six-string, but they wouldn't sound as cool then, now would they?

The point of this thread is for us to be helpful and give the threastarter feedback on his tab. Do you not know which sub-forum this is in?

the riffs are cool. but when i play with the tempo around 130bpm i cant help but notice a similiarity to Nickelbacks song 'next contestant'
Quote by masterohumans
there is something wrong with you that has nothing to do with that instrument you want to build.

^really?
Cause that's not intentional at all.

I was thinking more of James LaBrie's Invisible than Nickelback.

^shut up nOoB, learn what the forums are for before you start posting retarded comments like this one.

And Korn is not one person, so it would be korn ARE GODS

Well it isnt hard to bend a string that has the tension of a piece of well cooked spaghetti, especially when you have hands like goalkeeper gloves


My songs: (more to come) (C4C's)

cool riffs. i like the second one better, if u added a better ending 2 the second riff or just expanded on it it would be really good
#10
Sorry to revive a REALLY old thread. Just got a 7-string, I like the riff. Anyone can tell me what scale is used in it? Just want to understand how a metal riff like that is made.
#11
The first 3 bars are B dorian mode, the 4th bar is the B minor scale. Only one note of difference between them. Its then B Minor for the chord/riff pattern afterwards.

If you want some challenging/exercise focused 7 string riffs to play, would recommend these:
