standard tuning and strumming

I strum on a standard EADGBE tuning and find that the strings are very
taught and when I strum they reverberate for a few seconds and are very
clear and harsh (sign of a good acoustic guitar maybe?). This is fine when
picking and slow strumming but I find the sound reverb tends to overlap in
the next chord when I quick strum. This is confusing to my 'ear' when I try
to time the strums.
When I see vids and tutorials, the guitars seem to have far less reverb and
the individual chords are far easier to hear..
Lately I have tuned to D G C G C D for Led Zeps Rain Song, and found the
strings far more forgiving and easier to strum. I have tried to quick strum
and found the patterns far easier to do and the sound is far more defined.
I guess what I am trying to say is - this may sound silly, is there a way of
tuning my guitar strings (EADGBE) to give the same 'feel' as the (DGCGCD)
I guess I will get a few 'no - you gotta stick with it' replies - which I
will do. But its just something I noticed and I thought I'd throw the query
the experts way.
Thanks in advance.
