Universal String Tension Calculator

Use this to calculate the tension on your instrument when using the recommended gauages and then recalculate the gauges to keep the tension correct when re-tuning.

However, a guitar ought to be able to cope with light or medium in standard tuning I would have thought, it's just that the change in tension could alter the action (ie setup).
