AEBGDA - Three Octave

Description

I use this on a 4-string electric Mandolin, low to high E B G D. From standard Mandolin GDAE drop the two wound strings (G,D) by 3 frets and the two unwound (A,E) by 2 frets. Or just drop G&D by 1 to F# & C# and leave A & E alone. The same idea on guitar is A2 E3 B3 G4 D5 A5 as above, which I have tried but found it didn't sound great and the string gauges were annoying. It's tough on guitar but easy from standard mandolin. I arrived at it after trying different open-chord tunings on mandolin. It must have been used before, but I found no information online - it's a fascinating tuning between mandolin and guitar, very like and unlike each of them.
