what gauge strings should i put on my B.C. Rich Beast to make it sound about like a 7 string guitar? i dont have money to buy a seven string and i have an idea for one of my bands songs, i just need a seven string guitar, and i heard you can make a six string guitar sound like one. i dont need the high E string for the riffs im working on. plus my other guitarist is doing the solo anywayz on a six string.
you, you'd have to tune your e to b and so on, putting thicker string wont change the note, it'll just make it sounds beefier
well u obviously have to skip a string somewhere, but iv downtuned the low E to an A with 12 gauges easy
if you want powerchords to sound like on a 7-string you might just play inversions on 6 strings : you can play i.e. this :
One of my guitars is currently in drop A with 10s on it, but I will be changing them to 12s
One of my guitars is currently in drop A with 10s on it
I bet that sounds like ass.
Sounds like the threadstarter just wants to tune to B, in which case he'll need some heavy strings. Try 13s.
Dude, go with 11gage
I'd say 12-54s.
Just tune to BEADF#B with a good set of 12's minimum really
