My tuning lately has been E-B-E-B-E-E
Man. See, I really wish I could read that and be like "ah yeah, I should try that". But for all practical purposes I don't see the point in alternate tunings. Everything I played around on in open-G I could easily figure out in standard tuning. The only big thing I can see with Open Tunings is using a slide.
But then again I can't say that I have a really good ear. I can figure stuff out, but it's not instant. I play more from feel and repetition. I'm accustomed to where things are in standard tuning, the various rock-n-roll cliches and where I'm gonna what to put my fingers next.
