"Bad Seed"

Below are 2 different tabbings for the same song.  They sound the same only they use 

2 different tunings.  The first one uses a dropped D type tuning (except it's flat) 

and the second one uses a standard tuning except the low 'E' string is tuned to C#.

Db = C# (just incase you don't know any music theory)  The first tab will sound fuller

on some of the riffs because it's easier to do power chords in that tuning, but the

second will be easier to play if you don't want to change the tuning of your guitar,

you can play it in standard tuning, it will just sound higher than the album.
