What is the reccomended string gauge for tuning my guitar to open D for slide? I have a Les Paul so the scale is 24.75 inches. I dont want to get a gauge to heavy and mess something up but i still want a fair amount of tension. Thanks

I've played Open D on a set of Light strings without a big issue at all. But most people I know who play open tunings in slide seem to like jumping up to Mediums for it.

What do you currently have on your guitar? If you have 9's right now, going up to 10's shouldn't change too terribly much.
I have 10's right now in standard tuning
