Check out the Paradigm series from EB. Some of the sets are like a split set. Skinny top heavy bottom sets are 10-52 for 6 string. 10-62 for 7 string. For reference, their standard 11s are 11-48. I played 11s in E for years because I wanted those chunky low strings. Now I can get thicker low strings and easier high bends without killing myself on that unwound G, and without having to split a set myself.
That G is way too complicated. Gotta do that lazy-assed Rock G. Grab the low E with your thumb, and mute the A string with it, too. Index finger does the high E. You gotta takes as many shortcuts as possible in life. This is one of them.
Learning to care again. "Maybe this new guitar will get me playing!" If I do play more, I'll probably just play ancient Metallica riffs, or write my own stuff like I normally did. I would definitely do the latter over the former once I swap out the strings, de-tune, and set up the guitar. I don't know anyone else's music out of a standard E tuning.
