Tuned a half step down.  you can play most of it in standard, but if you listen to the 
guitar in the bridge it's pretty clear that they're tuned down as you can hear open strings.

The first part of the riff is actually:

Intro:
d#---------------------------------------------|
A#---------------------------------------------|
F#------12------12------------12------12-------|
C#---12------12-------12---12------12-------12-|
G#-10------10------------10------10------------|
D#---------------------------------------------|

Instead of:
Intro:
d#---------------------------------------------|
A#---------------------------------------------|
F#------12------12------------12------12-------|
C#---12------12-------12---12------12-------12-|
G#-9-------9-------------9-------9-------------|
D#---------------------------------------------|

But other than that, great tab !
