Have mercy on me, oh God

Your best bet is to play this with standard tuning with this riff for intro/verse

e|----------------------
B|----------------------
G|----------------------
D|----6--6---6--6-------
A|---4--4---4--4--------
E|--4-----4-------------

Then for the chorus play C#, G#, and Bb power chords. It sounds ok to get by. if these arent right, try moving them up everything i said up 2 frets, but im pretty sure theyre right. The bridge is just C#.

If you were going to play it with standard tuning you would have to play this. Which can be a bit of a stretch for some. Oh and the bridge would then be F# and C#, not just C#.

e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|----6---6---6---6---|
A|---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|
E|--6---4---2---2-----|

Your best bet at playing this with ease is to have your pinky on the D (6th) string (this never leaves this spot), 3rd finger on E (6th) and 1st finger barring A and E (4th). For the first change just lift the 3rd finger. Then for the second change slide your 1st finger down to 2nd fret on E and use your middle finger to play the C# note (4th) on A.
Does that make sense?

Great stuff TIMAY21!
