So, I was messing around with tunings on my guitar today, and came up with this:

Low to High-

C# 3
G# 3
C# 4
F# 4
G# 4
C# 5

And was wondering if anyone had any idea what it was? It sounds really beautiful, and it extremely easy to work with, but I don't really know what to call it.

Thanks in advance!

It's a C#5 with a 4th, I don't know what it would be called. Maybe something like C#5sus4?

actually a suspended chord doesn't have the 3rd so it would be C#sus4.

and to the TS, that tuning is basically the same as DADGAD half a step down. its very popular.

Good call, that should have occurred to me.
