D# G# C# F# A# D#
Tuning - D# standard. [D#,G#,C#,F#,A#,D#]
This took a while, and I'm not sure it's 100%
But, I did my best.
The chords mentioned above the tab are what they would be in standard tuning.
This is also my first tab, so don't be too harsh.

Repeat once more, but only up to the F chord.
Instead of Fm for the second time, it's G major.

It's the same way for the rest of the song.
Practice makes perfect.
and for the end, strum C. :].

The first version is technically right, but it's 1 half step too sharp.

The chords I believe are 100% correct, and have alot more body, and fullness than the single notes at a time that version 1 uses.
It's necessary to tune a half step down for this song because of the use of open strings.
The odd "C" based chord might be throwing you off. It's an odd sounding chord, but still correct for the song in particular. You just have to play this while the song itself is playing, and compare. :].
