But for now, I'm kinda happy with open F and C as my main tunings on stage.

But there's open E there in between too! And that's cool, usually I tune to E in the "usual" way..

Never tried the MM strings, haven't gotten any yet, will do some day!

And I'll try that low D tuning as well, will be interesting!
What string gauge do you use??

I use this tuning because I like a lot of low end, it gives a fat bass, very nice when you play solo or duo without a bassguitar involved..
And it gives less tension on the vintage instruments.

Also, for me it feels better to play, easier to fret without wearing your hands out in a 3 hour gig, haha! :mrgreen:

I use 0.15 - 0.58 in this tuning also for open F which I mostly use these days, like open G tuned a step down.. (On my Resolian I have a 0.62 bass string)

But I'm just as comfortable playing and singing in open A, G, D and E!!

And what weight of strings would be most suitable? and finally, what are the advantages of using that tuning, presuming that it is something different from open E tuned down past open D to open C? In which case it would be just a very slack version of open E. Thanks, guys. :D Peace
