I like cgeg and other alternate tunings that only require changing one string. They’re easier to play with for a song or two.
I will be curious about how folks respond to arrangements that are much easier on Gceg as opposed to low G.

I don't know if I should comment, but I'm a baritone ukulele player here. I use standard DGBE. I think it lends itself well to classical since the pieces I am working on were originally written for guitar.

I’m glad you commented! I should perhaps have included that one. Maybe 5ths tuning, too.
