I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment What guitar tunings allow many chords without fretting between “live” strings
I don't think the comment about learning to finger cleanly was my most important one -- I made it a comment not an answer because it's a tangent to the actual question. But I do think it's important to note that the tuning you're suggesting is not "conventional wisdom". It's not a well-known solution to a well-known problem. There are common alternate tunings. This is one that you've invented and as far as we know, nobody else uses (yet?).

comment What guitar tunings allow many chords without fretting between “live” strings
It's a perfectly viable question. However the ability to fret a string cleanly is pretty fundamental for general guitar playing, and you would do well to address that issue rather than work around it. Technique would be the primary focus. If you have particularly large fingers, look at guitars with wider necks - but bear in mind that massive-handed players like BB King and Jimi Hendrix managed just fine.

This is a great way to share your novel tuning, but I think it would be polite to the reader to explain that this is very unorthodox indeed.

Spelling, and adapted to "how can I develop..." rather than "give me a ready made..."
