.120, .100, .080, .060, .040. Needing open strings for bass playing, very helpful! Trying playing Pantera's Walk without open D and it can be quite laborius!

 

Thinner strings for less tension on the bass. More tension ont he bass generally lead to the neck bowing more because of the tension - not the worst thing, but too much can be troublesome.

What I do since I need an open low C instead of a low B is I tune up only the low string so I get CEADG. That can be kinda weird because it changes the relation between the low strings but once I got used to it I really like it as an alternative to Drop C tuning (CGCF) on a 4 string

I'd tune CDADG if I had to have an open C on a 5 prolly.
