Is there a good reason for this? It seems that most classical music were not written in E.
Not sure why we adapted E tuning as standard.

Just wondering.

It's an e-mazing tuning.

Dunno, on guitar because C Maj scale is easy in open position?

I know. E-nbelievable, eh?

Also, it's so you have both easy chord shapes and no move a lot when playing scales. No idea why it's on E though.

What do you mean by scale length?

Because otherwise it wouldn't be considered br00tal to tune down to drop A, G or Z.

Scale length doesn't necessarily justify the tuning for a string instrument. I understand that you mean that it was a comfortable tension for this scale length, however:
1) Scale lengths have not always been the same
2) Strings have been made of different materials and thicknesses, which affects the tension and subsequently also the tuning.

Scale length. There's also that some chords (such as G) would be pretty difficult to play in open positions.
