If you're making a transition from "normal" acoustic gauge to Nashville tuning, you can try:.012, .016, .010, .014, .020, .030This is replacing the E, A, D, and G strings. Keep in mind though, you might have trouble staying in tune if you don't get the nut and truss rod adjusted for the different string gauges and tension.
