Hey guys! No need to introduce Rusty Cooley so i'll just give you a link to a phone interview which talks about loads of stuff.

http://www.smartassradio.com/

Especially there is a piece of interview where Rusty answers to all those "emotional" guitarists what shred playing is and all the bending talk! smile.gif

Also be sure to check this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=-FpVYfP0Xlo

Enjoy it!


EDIT: whoops, missed the link! smile.gif

After being out of the house for 12 hours i'm not surprised at all that i forgot the link. I'm also doing homework for university, watching YouTube vids of Rusty, listening to mp3's and trying to post this topic biggrin.gif

For those who are interested: Dean Guitars are also building Rusty his signature 6-string and 8-string guitar. Can't wait to see what an 8-string will look like smile.gif

What is the tuning for an 8-string? If I'm not mistaken, a 7-string is EADGBEB....but what about an 8?

No, a 7 string would be (top to bottom) EBGDAEB

I would guess an 8 string would add another 4th below the B to give you a an F# maybe ...

So the 8 string adds a higher string above E?

Yeah, Rusty said it was so he could get the super high notes only instruments like Violin can reach. Thats what a few other 8 stringers use for tuning as well, like Meshuggah.

Originally a 7-string guitar was planned to have a high A string - first 7-string was Ibanez Universe but as soon as you touched the high A string it would brake so they decided to put a low B string.

High A string is actually not that high and you can't kill cats with it wink.gif

Listen to Rusty's "Prelude To Madness" - it's played on Conklin 8-string and is a killer shred piece.

If you really need a weapon for cats than visit some air-guns web-shops wink.gif laugh.gif

The new Ibanez 8-string has a low F# string and you actually can't find any use for it because it sounds horrible.
