I've been in search of a new way of tuning that would be versatile and plenty of possibilities.
Ones which I have found interesting are:
Em E
B
G
E
B
E
Which allows you to plav minor chords with just one finger. However, five-string chords are pretty ****ed up.

And D (used in Iris- goo goo dolls)

D
D
D
D
D
B

Which, although it stretches the 5th string pretty much and repeats the notes as in a mandolin, it lets you play chords that are neither major nor minor nor whatever, a single note!
Also I have loosen the E string one octave, it gives the guitar a basse touch.

what have you seen or tried? what are your suggestions?

E

It was developed as the perfect tuning, good compromise between chordal work and scales. The end.


Well, I think so anyway.

well, i occasionally use

F
C
F#
C#
G#
D

its good for me, becuase it covers various ends of the spectrum

tuning my low E to D allows me to play heaver stuff, and the F# C# and G# make it easier to play normal stuff. The F and C are tuned that way because it makes it a harsher higher sound. The notes actually work well together. You should try it
