The song starts at [0:21]
The song is played in G, but in the clip Dan's guitar is tuned
down a full tone to D-G-C-F-A-D, and he has a capo at the 2nd
fret to bring it back up to concert pitch. This is a common
practise for 12 string guitar players, as the slacker strings
take some of the strain off of the guitar neck. If you're on
a 6 string just play it in G, no capo or detuning needed.
