Great tab, and one of my favourite songs. I found another very similar tab on another site, with much simpler tuning - EAEGBe - and a very similar picking pattern; but this one is worth the tuning hassle, *****

I think I'll try that, thanks. I noticed that you can play 'High and Dry' by Radiohead with this tuning VERY easily - the three main chords (with this EBEG#BE tuning) are played as follows: E = (000000) Asus2 = (000100) F#m11 = (022100)
Do you know any other songs that convert well with Open E tuning? (it's a bit of a bother to change tuning all the time)
