But in open E tuning is the 6th through 1st strings are tuned to E, B, E, G#, B and E, respectively. You apparently know this bcause you said you "looked it up". "It sounds nothing like it"? It sounds nothing like what?

I wouldn't be much help anyway as I have never tried alternate tunings. But I'm sorry I'm just not sure what you are asking.

Maybe if you rephrase the question someone can provide a much more intelligent response than I am offering. You might even consider starting a thread about this subject.
