The Talisman
As per the EnVivo Video the only way this works is split tuning   (watch Janick's 
fretting of the chords)
strings 1-2-3 tuned to D ( or a full step down) strings 4-5-6 regular E440  The rest of 
the song on electric
guitars are std 440 tuning except Adrian he is in Drop D as shown below.
