transcribing or something... 7strings to 6strings

I wasn't sure where to post this...but, I was wondering if there was a way to change a 7string guitar part into a 6string guitar part, if you know what I mean. Because I have the tab to the Dream Theater song Glass Prison, which uses a 7stringed guitar, which I don't have- only a 6string. Is there anyway to do this? Any, uh... help would be nice. Thanks.

well if they dont use the low b or the high e string, then you can cut that off completey.

it'll be hard becuase they probably wrote the riffs so that they stay in the same position. but maybe move the high e notes onto the high b string.
