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 :)

but I doubt he’ll use them live.

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.
