For some months I've been quite obsessed with the sound of some djent metal groups.
Bought a 7-string guitar with the largest scale length I could afford along with an 8 string pack, the thickest one being a .80. I did not reach my desired note at all; still quite happy with the guitar.
I'm still willing to spend more if that would get me to my desired note, but I'm really having a hard time understanding what I'm missing and by how much.
The 7-string had a 686 / 648 mm scale length (fanned frets), and I was using a .80 string.
The tuning I was aiming for seems to be: C F C F A# D G
I'm no music expert at all but I think that's a C1. Could I achieve that with some bass strings? Do I need a different (longer scale, baritone) guitar, or do djent players only achieve this with post-processing effects?
