I am a huge fan of many alternative tunings, for the the very reasons you hinted at. It really gets me out of the 'box' I grew up in.
Joni Mitchell used a number of them.
I was lucky enough to see Michael Hedges just before he passed away....wow. Those were some great tunings.
These tunings open doors for me. I have a magician friend, who is also a musician. He introduced me to a tuning I have never heard before, but will post when I remember it!
DADGBD is of course popular, but there are infinite others.....DGDGBD...etc.
Getting your low E all the way down to C and going from there is also interesting. CGCGCE....Greg Brown comes to mind, as in "Brand New Dodge".
