Guitar Altered Tuning "Irish Purr"

I've been trying to get a creative spark going that seems to have fizzled a bit as of late. I was reading the latest "Guitar World" magazine about an alternate tuning Jimmy Page used on Led Zeppelin III and thought I'd mess around with it. The tuning Page discusses in the magazine was "low to high C A C G C E" I altered this a bit and tuned C A C G C C  ( all down tuned except the B string which is up a half fret - be gentle or you will break this string). This little musical phrase stuck in my head so I thought I'd share.
