Do u need to be uber good to play them? Whats the advantage? Do you need to learn different things to play em?

the 7th string is a low b i believe that (mostly) metal and nu-metal guitarists use to get a very deep sound to their power chords etc. Never played one, but i don't see why it would be too much harder, i mean i guess certain chords would be harder to play and what not

Uber good to play them? Well you'd need some decent amount of skill to do it...

Advantage? You have an extra octave (is that right?) to play on

Different things? Just need to get used to the width of the neck and playing cleanly with SEVEN strings.

1. No. for example, KoRn plays sevenstrings, they are terrible. It's not any harder to play a 7 then it is a 6.

2. More notes in one position on the neck. More notes on the guitar overall..

3. You don't HAVE to... the highest 6 strings are the same as a 6 string guitar so you can play everything you already know on a 6. You might want to learn some 7 string songs though... You also could learn how to incorporate the low B into chords/scales you already know as well..

Nah I doubt it, I personally haven't played one but I'm pretty sure once you get used to the neck that it's just an extra low string.
