Use chorus 1.2 if you have those other instruments playing or whatever.
I use 1.1 (guitar only) because it has a more full sounding effect with
the guitar alone (it's not so plain).

*Part of Bridge

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO TUNE YOUR GUITAR INTO THIS TUNING??
-Tighten the thick E string a little until it sounds the same as the A string
 when you play the E string on the 4th fret.
-Tighten the A string a little until it sounds the same as the D string
 when you play the A string on the 4th fret.
-Tighten the D string a little until it sounds the same as the G string
 when you play the D string on the 4th fret.
-Tighten the G string a little until it sounds the same as the B string
 when you play the G string on the 3rd fret.
-Tighten the B string a little until it sounds the same as the thin E string
 when you play the B string on the 4th fret.
-Loosen the thin E string until it sounds just like the B (now the Bb/C#) string.

NOW, it should all be tuned to:F,A#,D#,G#,C,C;check by doing the standard tuning method:
-The F string must sound like the A# string when you play it on the 5th fret.
-The A# string must sound like the D# string when you play it on the 5th fret.
-The D# string must sound like the G# string when you play it on the 5th fret.
-The G# string must sound like the C string when you play it on the 4th fret.
-The C string and the thinner C string must sound alike at all times, i.e.
  ;if you play them while pressing down no frets or when you press down on any fret
  ;but you must press down on the same fret for both C strings.
  SIMPLY: Just play both strings loose and they must sound the same!!

Hope I helped anyone who didn't know how to tune their guitar in this tuning.

NOTE: I just use an electric tuner to tune my guitar back into standard tuning!!
