It seems like Tom has discovered a new tuning, drop C#. It’s no big deal,
all you do is tune the top E string one step lower than D. It produces a unique
sound on the top E string when played open, and sounds very good on this song.
This song is definitely NOT in standard tuning, because whenever Tom plays it
live, he uses a different guitar instead his custom Gibson, at the moment he’s
using a white fender tornado. You can also hear it if you try to play along to
the song in standard tuning. And I re-submitted this tab coz being a dumbass I
fucked it up before :)


E ------------------------
B ------------------------
G ------6-----2-2-2-2-----
D ------x-----2-2-2-2-----
A -2/4--4-(0)-0-0-0-0-----


Just play these chords at the start of each bar; the verse is mainly mark’s bass:

E -------------
B -------------
G --6---2------
D --6---2------
A --4---0------


E ----------------------------------------
B ----------------------------------------
G ----------------------------------------
D --2-------------------------------------
A --2-------------------------------------
C#--3-(let ring)--333-777-555-88-00-333---


Note: Tom uses some cool effects during the build up to this bridge
but I doubt he’ll use them live.

E ------------------------------

End on:

D -2--
A -2--

That’s it

Drop C#... eBGDAC#?!?!?!?!? WTF are you smoking?! How, HOW!? could you even THINK that sounded anywhere NEAR right Youy'd have tune to D#, and drop the low D# to C# in order to get Drop C#. So in conclusion, you are WRONG, and and secondly, that is tuned WAY too low for Tom.
