Chords on a 7 string?!
You are supposed to only play the 7th string.
And get a 8 string thats the new thing

Transcribing ? Do you mean trying to interpret what you're hearing in other music ?

Or do you just mean you're finding it hard to know what shapes to play for chords using the extra B ?

You can just treat it the same way as you would with the 6 string. You can play the same power chord shapes and the interval between the low B and E is the same as you get with the E and, D and G.

I guess you need to check "inversions of chords" as usually only the root position is mentioned when learning chords. Why not ask the professor? its really not complicated and might be pretty fun when experimenting smile.gif
