I play my six string like a 7 string with no high E. It is tuned the same as a 7 string’s 6 biggest strings. I tune my lowest to A, next to E, and standard on up. That lets you play chords shaped very much like dropped D tuning (flat barr chords)and gives you a "KoRn" sound. Staind’s Mike Mushok uses his guitar like I do, but he has some different tunings he uses;Ab Eb Ab Db Gb Bb/ Ab Eb Bb Db Gb Bb(what I like to use tuned down half a step)
