Just found a really awesome tuning for my classic acoustic! Video inside!

Holy shit guys, this is awesome! i might need to find a thicker string for the lowest string but that's alright!

Basically, from low to high: E-e-b-e-b-e

the high b and e strings are the same as always. the G string is tuned DOWN to E, the D string down to B, the A string down to the E that the lowest string is usually tuned to, and the low E an octave down.

I made a video for you fellas:

As i mention in the video, it would benefit from a thicker low E, as i didn't really think about that when i got these at all. i just wanted to tune it to drop C!

Looks like a very fun tuning
Sounds good with the low E too - in terms of resonance at least. But yes needs a thicker string!
Did you say at the end it's nylon??

My acoustic is in C# G# C# G# C# D# which is super cool. I want a 7th string in G# though

Sounds like a fun tunning.

Oh, if you are looking for thicker nylon strings, give Giannini a try. I use their .060 on my 7 stringer (at 666mm scale ). I was pleasantly surprised by their quality, they seem up to par with the expensive strings I often see on classicals. They are silverplated so they feel awesome, and they sound very crisp... good good strings.

Is this... guitar?

It's an unbelievably fun instrument to mess around with.
