Has anyone here played their Ric 6 or 12 strings much in an open D or G tuning (especially a 12)?

Just wondering as I love to experiment with them and I think they are really fun to play for a change of pace...

I've tuned the low E of the low pair down to D with interesting results . . .

DADGAd on a Ric 12? Might be interesting. I keep my bouzouki in Irish tuning (GDAD).

The way I play, my guitar automatically tunes to EGAD. I can't stop it from doing so. Is it trying to tell me something?

I once detuned all of the octave strings on one of my 12'ers. Ended up sounding a bit like Trevor Rabin in "Owner of a Lonely Heart". Except he's a much better guitar player than I am...

I love ( a Dave Crosby favourite) EBDGAE. Then try playing Guinevere (CSN).....
