Thirds is definately possible - major 3rds.... I wish I had my notes in front of me, as I'd give you the exact string gauges required, the names of the strings, and the tension.
Interestingly enough, I made the mistake of mentioning 3rds on Sticklist... and that sent off all kinds of warning flags....
Trust me - 3rds - Major 3rds as far as my 12 string TT Mobius Megatar Toneweaver goes - is a very very exciting tuning 😉 😉 😉
