I did play with an alto guitar tuned in f minor at 415 instead of d minor.
At 415 I guess it would effectively be e minor. In that case the first string on the alto guitar would remain a G. Interesting.
That was what I figured out. I stringed it with D'Addario speciality singles.
Stringing the alto guitar to d minor would be way easier IMO. String 1 goes from G to F (easy), strings 2, 3, and 4 are the same (no change), string 5 goes from C to D , 6 from G to A, and the rest use individual wound basses.
e minor, on the other hand would be a hassle. You would need lots of new diameter strings.
