Drop DGDGBe tuning, capo on 4th fret
The tuning is absolutely necessary.  When I started out, I'd look for another tab 
that didn't have weird tuning.  This helps:
http://www.get-tuned.com/online_guitar_tuner.php

Based off live performance can be seen here:

(Watch out for feedback  at one spot ~1:50)

Also based off another tab here:
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/d/daughter/candles_ver2_tab.htm
This is nearly dead on. When they cut out, I melded together the base and guitar, 
so it sounds fuller(basically just using both D strings for octave harmonies).

Great tab! If you don't wan't to go through the trouble of downtuning you could put a capo on 2nd for only your 4 highest strings, it works fine for me.
