Thread Name: Open C tuning CGCGCE
Subject: RE: Open C tuning CGCGCE
I play almost exclusively in CGCGCC (I drop tune the top E string as well) on a Taylor "Big Baby" I bought about 10 years ago. I don't find any intonation issues when using a fairly ordinary set of medium-gauge strings -- which surprises me given the Big Baby's 15/16 length scale.
I'd suggest a combination of not fretting too hard and heavier strings may help.
