DAda or CGcG tuning string gauges and intonation
I'm discovering 4 ED and DAda (or is it DAdA?) tuning with n/d and really like this! I am experimenting with which tuning I prefer though - either CGcG or the DAdA tuning. I would appreciate advice for what string gauges you 'all would recommend:
1. C tuning, McSpadden (27")
2. D tuning, McSpadden
3. C tuning shorter scale, Blue Lion (26")
4. D tuning Blue Lion
And I'm guessing I should tune the tonic to the melody string 3rd fret, then tune the drones to this?
Thanks so much!
