to Lirikai, the tuning IS drop-D, but I think it's 1/4 step sharp - play along wit the CD or video clip, you'll see what I mean - your "normal" standard or flat intervals sound too sour, I've taken it to my guitar teacher and he agreed. Maybe the solo in this tab is not quite spot on, but overall a good job.

well I'm not quite sure still about the 1/4 step up pitch, but it's drop-f***ing-D tuning

The intermission (under the solo) is wrong
