so are you going up from each one such as

G C E A
A C A C

the first tune up is just fine but going from E-A is a stretch i dont want to take... please explain further.

You're not tuning the E string up, you're tuning it down

It's not exactly an open tuning. Open tunings generally are a chord when strummed (so standard tuning is actually an "open" tuning, Open C6). You need at least three notes for a chord. So if you left the E alone (or maybe tuned the G up to A... probably other ways too) it'd be an open C chord.

Your tuning reminds me a little bit of the banjo "sawmill" tuning. Probably can do some interesting clawhammer stuff on it.

ok tuning it down leaves it really floppy... and the string isnt very tight either...
