this song is amazing and all the tabs on here didnt even come close, this is actually 
john plays, trust me...

Tuning is normal...
make your guitar have as much bass as possible, this is a very smooth song, finger pick 
no picks whatsoever, not even the lead parts...

Not how he plays it. Watch some video of him playing it on youtube.com, and you will see he has a slap/flick technique. One of the other versions had it right, though maybe not exact. This would be a decent EASY version for electric guitars.
