Tuning: Drop B (B-F#-B-G-B-E)

Jani Liimatainen uses an 7-string guitar where the 7th string is darker (B).
But I have tabbed this in drop B so people with 6 strings can play it!

|-------------|--------------------------------------| The outro part is
|-------------|--------------------------------------| Repeated many times until
|-------------|--------------------| 05:25. At 05:25-| Jani uses
|--8--5--10---|--------------------------------------| a kind of a delay effect.
|--6--3--8----|--------------------------------------| Listen to it and try to
|-------------|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-...-------------------| find it out with your own
                 . . . . . . .       Delay effect. It’s kind
                                     of hard to tab how it
                                     goes with the delay. The
                                     Delay goes slower and
                                     Slower until it stops at
                                     05:32.

Tab seems okay.

But can't you just play it in Standard Tuning? I know it isn't as heavy but it still sounds pretty good.

I want to post or [tab]
