the intro is not correct. He is a fret off in most cases

This version looks to get the real notes of the original song but in standard tuning (the original is actually tuned half a step down). But the low E notes in the intro are off as a result. If, on the other hand, you tune to drop-D, then you can play this:


E:-----|-----------------|-----------------|
B:-----|-----------------|-----------------|
G:-----|-----------------|-----------------|
D:-----|-------4-1-----3-|--1--------------|
A:-----|-----1-----------|-----4--4--------|
D:--1--|---4-------------|---------------1-|etc.
