Motion City Soundtrack plays from Eb tuning. Everything should be shifted up one fret; the chorus should look something like this:


E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|-2--2--4--4---6--6--6--6---6--6--6--6---2-2-2-2--4-4-4-4--8-8-8-8-8-8-8|

^ Stupid me left the tuning written in standard. The strings should be:

Eb or D#
Bb or A#
Gb or F#
Db or C#
Ab or G#
Eb or D#
