Forgive me for asking but are the 4 low strings ever or rarely played by fretting with the left hand or are they always played open string?
The 9th and 10th strings are too far for me to fret them, except for some positions. I routinely fret strings up to the 8th, particularly the 7th: it can be fretted easily. Those who have big hands might be able to fret all 10.
That's why I use re-entrant tuning: 7th or 8th as lowest strings, 9th & 10th tuned according to need.
I can only recommend this way of tuning.
