Relationship between tension, gauge, and unit weight ?
I'm looking for a 6-strings set that would allow me to tune my Stratocaster to drop Ab tuning (Ab Eb Ab Db F Bb).
Until now I've been using these strings meant for standard tuning. Gauges are 10-13-17-26-36-46.
I just read about this tension chart.
It left me clueless and dealing with a painful headache.
What do I have to look for in order to achieve my tuning ?
Gauge ? Tension ? Unit Weight ?
Also, Tension and U.W. seem to be mathematically related, but how does Gauge relate to them ?
Thanks A LOT in advance if anyone helps me with understanding this all.
