5 strings are only if you are wanting the sound of the 5 extra pitches the B string gives you. It hasn't much to do with the style you are playing. On the other hand though, 6 and 7 strings are not necessarily out there because you want really high Cs or Fs, but it is mostly because they give you economy of movement. In other words, you don't have to move as much up and down the neck in order to play higher pitched notes. Let me know if this was helpful. ~Javi~
