Played in Low G Tuning (one of my favourite alternate tunings). Thanks for listening.

Cool, I've never tried "Low G" tuning and I'm wondering about string tension. Please walk me through which strings are tuned up and which tuned down.

Hi,
I’m not exactly the best at describing technical things, but I’ll try my best. So, I’m using medium gauge strings, and the tuning is gGDGD

Besides the 1st and 5th string, which remain the same… you down tune the other strings. Other relevant information… My tuner is set at 430 HZ

Oh you described which way to crank the knobs just fine!

I just gave it a try and could not play with strings that slack. Also felt lost! I can usually find my way around odd tuning but this one plum evades me! You make it work on "Acorns", good job.
