Does this have a certain tuning to it because this sounds way off on my guitar.

It isnt in a different tuning, and this tab is 100% correct because its taken from the book.

this tab IS NOT 100% correct. Everything is supposed to be 1/2 step down. Play the song alongside on your guitar and you'll notice its off skatanist
