Tuning

Just built another 4 String and thought for the first time I would tune it D G B E  ie the top four strings of a 6 string. Nearly there and Bang went the 3 rd string. The others felt a bit tight. si I Changed them from Medium Gauge to Light Gauge. Tuning up  Bang went the top string. Any suggestions please. ?See More
