there's a neat Em9 tuning that David Crosby uses on several tunes: EBDGAD.

Maybe boring but I'm always playing standard tuning... started to play D standard recently and will try C standard next time I play.. starting to think that E standard is just too high, I never play higher than maybe 15th fret so why not get those lower notes.

For the past few years I've been playing in D standard @ 432 hz, with 12 gauge strings. When I got my new Jaguar, I kept 9's on it and left it tuned to standard. A few nights ago I tuned down a whole step to D again and wow, I've got my tone back. The lower frequencies are a lot more pleasing to me, physically -- more guttural, less cerebral.

I keep my baritone tuned A-A, my Bass VI in Aen standard (DADAAE), and my bass in standard tuning.

I've been noodling with my lap steel in C6 tuning, which is surprisingly versatile, but I'm still pretty terrible at lap steel

And I've got two project guitars that are kind of on the backburner, but when I finally finish putting them together, I plan on tuning one to New Standard Tuning. The other I will probably just put in standard or maybe D standard :idk:

I have my lapsteel tuned to C6 and I like it, you've got all the basic chords and useful intervals for double stops easy to access. Still figuring out my way around it though.
