Most people now use a C6 tuning to play old country music and Western swing on a lap steel, on a 6 string that's CEGACE from low to high. The low C is the one on the third fret of the A string of a standard tuned guitar, so you'll need a special string set.
What GHS puts in their 6-string C6 set are: 015, 017, 022, 026, 030w, 036w
