So I'm probably the last one to hear this band but Aaron Marshall is a really good player. I'd like to have a practice of this style in my lineup but do not have a seven string.

The two things that are most intriguing is the tone and the rhythm. Can this be achieved with a six string? How do you do it?

Secondly I guess would be lead guitar. There is something simple in those notes that rings a bell in my ear as comfortable.
It's not over the top but yet intricate.

Thanks for your help. Here's their last album. A new one is coming soon.

Hey mate - there are a few things you need to know here smile.gif

1) You can achieve these tunings with a 6 string in the following ways:

- get a baritone guitar which is basically a 6 string that can be tuned low due to the neck length. I got mine in drop G with 14-70 strings biggrin.gif
- if you want to use a regular 6 string, it would be good to use a fixed bridge one and the neck must be set for such gauges - better take it to a luthier and ask about it. I used 11-56 on a normal guitar, for drop Bb and it stayed great! The general idea is that you need to downtune your guitar a lot...

2) You can drop an eye over my series called Metal Metrics, in which you will find a lot of rhythm and lead elements which are common in the 'djent' genre, which this song fits into: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/search/me...1/10/n/n/n/t/f/

Let me know if there are any other thoughts you might have smile.gif

I had never really heard Intervals, but I listened to this last night before going to bed, and I must say... it's right up my alley! Love it!

Oh, mate there are many bands that sound amazing and they are in this particular area - my two recommendations at this moment:

Well I haven't gone completely balls to the wall with 14-70 but yet a milder 12-56 gauge. I'll fool with this weekend!

Hey Cosmin are you going to chew my balls off if I do your Vivaldi piece in a different tuning?

So I put the bigger strings on and am quite surprised how full they sound, This is not in style of Intervals but just a quick recording with a looper with the bigger strings. This is right from the Traynor amp with my iphone recording.

Besides them sounding really nice, they were not much harder to play. Maybe bending like a madman or playing bar chords all night would get painful. ohmy.gif

sounds like stuff that could go well with the layering used by this sort of bands smile.gif You need to get acquainted to the gauge and you'll also be able to bend and play barre chords - just give it a bit of time and it'll be there
