Yeah really why would you need 2 d strings in a row that would be pointless

I've broken a couple G strings playing in this tuning (Love playing Hope and other very Celtic-sounding acoutic parts). My suggestion is just to use thicker gauge strings, I noticed that as soon as I changed strings on my acoustic (I didn't intend for them to be thicker) that I didn't break another G string tuning to DADAAD.

I would imagine it would also help to tune the G up last, but before you drop the B and E (as to offset the tension). Or maybe I just don't know what I'm talking about there, it's just a guess really.

Best of luck.
