i am thinking of tuning everyhting as a fourth (E A D G C F). Can someone tell me how this will affect my guitar playing? Which chords will I need to relearn (as in I can't play them in traditional open position anymore)? Anything regarding all fourth tuning would be appreciated.

Go to google or wikipedia...and type in New Standard Tuning...

It is all fourths...and Robert Fripp has a school for it.

Chords would be ridiculously difficult. That's one reason why the guitar has the 'B' instead of the 'C'

You'd need to relearn every chord that uses the B and E string. Virtually all the chords you would know

Well to help you out more....You cannot bend as much...You will have to develop a classical vibrato technique on the tuned up strings.

NST is CGDAeg... It has NO intervals of a fourth. It uses fifths, with a major third on the top.

In answer to TS question. EADGcf is really only useful for dyads, and lead work, as it standardizes the string intervals. It will make chords hard to play, using all six strings.
