    Odd tunings are my favorite.
    I recently said fuck it and just stuck with D standard/Drop C, but drop the lowest string to whatever low note I want (if I wanna pull some TesseracT/Meshuggah type shit.)

    I've been recently into Dir an Grey's tuning, if I ever decided to get a 7 string, which is Drop A/D (ADADGBE)

    I often have the bottom string on my 7 tuned up to C, I guess that's not particularly common.

    The only other non-standard one I really use is BEADGB.

    I oddly find that standard, even though the typical 6 string B tuning is F# instead of the G.

    I would actually think it would be weirder if someone tuned a 7 to BEADF#BE

    Been fucking around on my bass in cello tuning (CGDA)

    Trying to learn all of the Shrüm album by ear with it.

    I never really venture far from DADGAD as my "weird tuning" although I have dabbled in Open c before. Honestly though I feel that DADGAD almost turns the guitar into a different instrument, it sort of pulls me into playing it more like a Lute or Oud which is cool.
