So I have a 7 string with a 25.5 in scale length and was about to tune to drop A (a-e-a-d-g-b-e) with my strings being 62-52-42-30-17-13-10 but the tension was too high and I couldn't tune the strings to those notes because they'd break. What's a good tuning for 7 string that I can use for some djent type stuff as well as jazz? EDIT: I just realized that what I just tried is just standard tuning with a low A because I'm....slow. I used to play in drop C (c-g-c-f-a-d). Would that be good for jazz? Sorry if that's a no0b question, I'm still very new to jazz. Jazz. I just tried A-C-F#-C on the low strings (can't go any higher than F#) and it sounds pretty terrible. I'm sure they don't go together, but I don't know what strings go to what tuning or anything like that.
