I used a low ‘G’ string as my third string and tuned it to Bb. Then I used the ‘C’ string as my second string and tuned it to D. I took an ‘E’ string as my 1st string and tuned it to ‘G’. Finally, I took another ‘E’ string as my fourth string and tuned it to ‘D’. I think it works ok. BTW — the reason my ring-finger looks so red is that I jammed it between a wooden post and my lawn mower’s handle bar. I’ve now got a semi-circular wound the matches my wedding ring.
